Hello, my name is Jayme Medd and I am so thankful to be a part of an amazing team of kindergarten teachers at Rocklin Academy Gateway. This will be my fourth year teaching kindergarten at Rocklin Academy Gateway.
I received my bachelor’s degree in Liberal Arts from Pepperdine University. When I accepted a second grade position in the Victor Valley, I attended Cal State San Bernardino and completed my training to earn a Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. I taught in Southern California for 5 years before moving to Rocklin. In addition to my teaching credential I also have my CLAD and NCLB certifications.
My husband and I have lived in Rocklin for 25 years. I worked in the Eureka School District for three years and then chose to stay home and raise our two sons. As the boys grew older I volunteered in their classrooms, taught Sunday school and worked as both a reading intervention teacher and as a substitute for the Rocklin Unified School District. My oldest son will attend Law School at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska and my youngest son will be a sophomore at the University of Nevada Reno.
Kindergarten is a time of wonder, learning, and tremendous growth. I am thrilled to share in this exciting time of your child’s life. I strive to create a positive and productive learning environment that combines academic rigor with fun and engaging activities. I look forward to becoming partners with each child’s family to ensure we meet the needs of all students in my classroom.
