Mrs. Jennifer Wyatt
Hello! As your child's science teacher, I'm looking forward to working with you and your child toward making this year fun, productive, and a happy one for all of us. Students will be encouraged to try lots of new things with a positive attitude and I am expecting many great things from them. Working together we can accomplish this. It's going to be an exciting year.
Sometimes parents like to know a little bit about their child's teacher. My name is Jennifer Wyatt. I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Education after majoring in biology and the University of Oregon. This will be my second year teaching 5th grade science. I have previously taught 2nd grade, with twleve of those years being here at Las Brisas. I really feel privileged to be a part of a fabulous staff at such an amazing school. I will be celebrating my 28th wedding anniversary this fall with my husband Robert. We have two boys, Colby age 23 and Chase age 18. Colby is attending grad school at the University of Richmond and will play baseball for them. He graduated from Cornell University this past year and lost his senior season of baseball due to the Covid-19 pandemic. My son Chase graduated from Sandra Day O'Connor High School this past year and is attending Grand Canyon University where he is majoring in computer science. In our spare time we love to watch sporting events and movies. I enjoy hiking, kayaking and photography. I am a huge Denver Broncos fan and Oregon Duck fan as your children will discover this fall during football season!
Our classroom has many things that help make your child's learning fun and exciting. I encompass technology in my lesson instruction through the use of a SMART board and Google Classroom. We have a classroom library with books for every child's interest. We will explore the world of science through many discovery and hands on activities. I cannot wait to share my passion for science with my students!
