Hello, my name is Jill Sjoerdsma and I am excited to be serving the Paseo Hills and Copper Creek communities as the EL Teacher Specialist. This will be my 27th year in education. Over the years I have had the opportunity to teach EL and ELD students in first through eighth grade. This is my fourth year as an EL Teacher Specialist. I am looking forward to working with your child this year as they develop their language skills and grow academically, socially, as well as emotionally.
When I am not teaching, I enjoy reading, gardening, baking and traveling. My husband I have one son, Conor, who is a senior in high school this year. As a family we like to ski, as well as cheer on the Arizona Diamondbacks and the ASU Sun Devils (My alma mater!)
