Welcome to First Grade!
My name is Jill Schnack and I'm so excited to be your child's teacher this year! I was born in a small farm town in southwest Iowa. My family moved to Houston, TX when I was a baby, so I consider Houston my home! I moved to Austin to attend the University of Texas and knew immediately that this was the city for me!
I am so excited for a new school year full of learning, growing, and having fun. This will be my eighth year to be at Bridge Point, and my sixth year teaching first grade. During my first year here at BPE (2010-2011), I had the privilege of being a student intern and student teacher for Dana Hurd (second grade). I then graduated with honors from The University of Texas in May 2011 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Learning and Development, EC-6 and ESL. After graduating, I continued to work at Bridge Point as a sub and then as a teacher aide. First grade is where my heart is at. You will see that the amount of growth your child will make this year is truly incredible! I can't imagine myself in any other career field, and am so grateful for having the opportunity to work at such an amazing school.
I look forward to getting to know you and your child. We are going to have a fabulous year! Please don’t hesitate to contact me at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
