    About Mrs. Jami

         Mrs. Jami was born in Florida and grew up in South Texas. She moved to Missouri when she was sixteen years old and vastly enjoyed being around her extended family. After becoming a lifeguard at the local pools, she realized quite quickly that she loved working with children and wished to continue to do so in her profession. She attended Southeast Missouri State University, where she earned her Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis on Science.

         After she graduated, she began teaching in the small town where she was living. She taught third grade in that district for six years, where she was presented with the Courageous Champion Award for her work in making schools healthier through the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. While teaching, Mrs. Jami attended Southeast Missouri State University again and this time earned her Master's Degree in Elementary Administration. 

         Mrs. Jami has been a teacher at Patrick Henry Downtown Academy for the past three years and has enjoyed every second of it! Outside of work, Mrs. Jami enjoys spending time with her husband, Cliff, and their two kids, Eli and Caroline. She is also currently attending Saint Louis University in the doctoral program to earn her Superintendent certificate.
