Teacher of the Year

Mrs. Deckert
First Grade Teacher

We are fortunate to have Mrs. Deckert as a faculty member here at Harrowgate, where she started teaching in 1999. Her experience, dedication, and the love she has for her students and profession are apparent in her interactions with everyone in the school community. While she has high expectations for her classes, her caring heart and kind demeanor have brought success with children, parents, and co-workers alike. In addition to her work here at school, she enjoys being mom to four children, two of which are Harrowgate Eagles!

My name is Jennifer Deckert and I love teaching first grade! I taught for seven years at Harrowgate before taking seven years off to raise my children and open a business. This will be my third year back in the classroom since returning to teaching and I LOVE IT!! I truly enjoy teaching my first grade school babies and instilling a love of learning and reading! They make me smile and I especially enjoy when their little faces light up when they grasp a concept or when we take a brain break to dance! Not only do I enjoy teaching, but I also truly love being a Mommy to four kiddos (ages 14, 10, 7, 2). They keep my husband (who teaches at Carver) and I busy and always laughing. Our two boys and two girls are the light of our lives. Biking, swimming, camping, coloring, and trips to the beach with a great book are favorite pass time activities. Harrowgate is such a special school and I feel very blessed to be a part of the Harrowgate family!
