5/6 Grade Teacher
Hello. My name is Jill Wilson. I was born and raised in a small town in upstate New York. In fifth grade, I decided I wanted to be a teacher and played the part every chance I had. Whether I was reading to younger students, volunteering in classrooms, or tutoring after school, I was always involved in helping kids. When I graduated from Cambridge Central School in 2006, I attended The College of St. Joseph to pursue an education degree. I took both general education and special education courses, though my degree was in general education. I graduated in 2010. I then began to substitute in the local school districts and work at a Summer Camp for kids as an Aquatic Director and After School Program as a Head Counselor. In the Fall of 2011 I started graduate school at The College Of Saint Rose. During this time, I continued to work as a substitute as well as at both the summer and after school programs. I pursued and received a Masters in Literacy with a Certification in Special Education in May 2013. Chester–Andover Elementary School started my teaching career. I have found a great joy and comfort as part of the community and plan to stay!
