Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Jill Carr
I was born and raised on the beautiful island of Oahu, and lived there for 21 years of my life. I moved to Seattle to finish my bachelors degree at Seattle Pacific University, and then decided I wanted to become a teacher. I moved to Illinois to go to graduate school and obtained my Masters in Teaching from Aurora University as well as a special education endorsement from DePaul. This will be my 13th year teaching, but my first year teaching at Anthem School and in Arizona! My daughter (Chloe) and I just moved here in June to be closer to family and to escpae the brutal Midwest winters. I have taught grades 3, 4 and 5, and I was also a special education teacher for 3 years in both resource as well as a self-contained classroom teacher for kiddos with autism. I have a very special place in my heart for those kids!
I have just purchased a home in Anthem, and am so excited to be a part of such an amazing community! Chloe will be an 8th grader at Anthem school, and I am so thrilled for her to be attending such an amazing school! We have a very adorable and playful mini goldendoodle named Charlie, and he will often make an appearance on camera! :) He is not camera shy! In my free time, I also manage my own cake business out of my house and have been doing that for the past 4 years. It is such a passion of mine, and a great creative outlet for me!
