About Me

August 2017


Dear Parents,


         Hello! I am Mrs. Stout and I will be your child’s English/Reading teacher this school year. I look forward to getting to know your child in class. I also hope to talk with you further whenever we need to discuss your child’s progress. I would like to introduce myself, both personally and professionally.

        I received my Master’s degree from Mount Vernon Nazarene University a few years ago, my Bachelor’s degree from The Ohio State University, and my high school diploma from Elgin High School! I really enjoy the middle school age group and find that the students’ energy and capacity to learn keep me both refreshed and challenged.

         I take my commitment as a teacher very seriously and I constantly work at balancing my career, coaching, and my family. My family will once again meet the challenge of helping each other balance our work responsibilities and numerous family activities!

         I look forward to a productive and enjoyable year with your child.






Mrs. Jocelyn Stout
