Mrs. Jennifer Manders
Welcome to 5th Grade!
My name is Jennifer Manders, and I am excited about the new school year. Most importantly, I am delighted to be your teacher. It is going to be a fun year of growing and learning, and I promise to be there to help and support you in any way possible.
I am from a small town in South Carolina. I moved to Georgia in 2009. My husband, Chad, and I live in Watkinsville. We have one son, Maddox, who is a 7th grader at Malcom Bridge Middle.
In addition to Oconee County, I have taught in South Carolina as well as both Gwinnett and Columbia counties in Georgia. I recently attended graduate school. First, earning my Master's degree in 2020, followed by my Specialist degree in 2021. I have been teaching for 22 years, and I am known for my enthusiasm and genuine love of teaching and learning.
In addition to teaching and learning, I love to read, cook, and spend time with my family. This is going to be a great year, and I look forward to working with you.
