Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Ms. Orr, and I would like to welcome you to another exciting school year here at Pierre Laclede Junior Career Academy! I am truly excited about beginning our new year. I am a special education teacher in my 14th year of teaching, and I absolutely love working with kids! There are many exciting, yet educational, activities planned to help enhance student learning. While there are many important factors that play a role in a child’s educational career, teamwork is one that strikes a chord with me. The importance of team work is greatly compounded at this time due to the ongoing stay at home order associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19). In order to enhance the e-learning experience, I encourage you to visit www.slps.org/keeponlearning to access academic materials for all ages. My goal is to have a partnership with parents and students alike. We can work together as a team to make sure each individual student has a successful year.
I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, and attended the University City School District. I graduated from University City High School. I graduated from Harris Stowe State University with a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice and Fontbonne University with Master of Arts in Special Education. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, crafts and traveling to new places. I am engaged, I have two beautiful daughter’s and one dog name CoCo.
If you ever have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me. My e-mail address is Jennifer.email@example.com and the school direct number is (314) 385-0546. I check my email at the end of every day. We are a team, and together we will make this school year a wonderful experience for your child.
I look forward to an exciting school year!
Ms. J. Orr
