• Hello! My name is Erica Jakubik "Mrs. J." This is my second year teaching at Ginnings.  I am pretty new to Texas.  I moved here last year with my husband and 12 year old son, Teddy, from Somers, New York, a small, country town north of New York City.  That was a BIG move we and we are SO happy here!  
    I went to SUNY Cortland, NY for my bachelor's  degree in Sociology/Criminology.  After working in business for several years, I decided to follow my passion for children's literature and went to Pace University for my masters in education.  I taught in New York City for 13 years.  Extending my love of education, I have also earned a second masters degree in School Building Leadership and have continuing education experience from universities, such as, Harvard, NYU, and UConn.  
    This year will be an exciting year in third grade!  We are on an adventure to deepen our thinking about literature and the world around us.  We are going to dig in and get gritty!
