1st Grade Spanish Immersion Teacher
About Mrs. George
Hello! My name is Jennie George and I am so excited to be your child's teacher! I grew up in the Texas Panhandle in a tiny town called White Deer. I come from a family of teachers. In fact, my mom was my 6th grade teacher! I'm very close to my parents and we talk almost every day. I have three older brothers and two of them live here in Austin. My wonderful husband, Andrew, and I have been married since 2008. We have a son, Henry, and two daughters, Ada and Haydée..
In my free time I love to spend time with my family. We love being outdoors! My favorite pastime is reading. I am always reading several books. I also enjoy cooking and gardening.
In 2004 I graduated from UT Austin with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Dance. I still love to dance! When I decided to become a teacher I went back to UT Austin. Hook 'Em Horns! Before coming to Eanes, I taught 4th grade for one year at Lee Elementary in Austin ISD. This will be my eleventh year teaching, and my tenth year teaching first grade at Eanes Elementary. I feel so lucky to have landed in such a wonderful community doing the best job - teaching first graders! We are going to have an awesome year!
