Dana AltmanWelcome to 2nd grade!

I am so excited to be your teacher this year! This will be my third-year teaching 2nd grade at Jenkins Elementary. I graduated with my bachelor's degree in education from Penn State and am currently a full-time online Graduate student at the University of Pittsburgh. I will graduate with my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction next spring! I love all Pittsburgh and Penn State sports teams as well as coffee and the color purple.

I am looking forward to a great year!

Michelle MooreWelcome to 2nd Grade!

I am so excited for this school year to begin!  I look forward to embarking upon a new school year and getting to know each one of you personally. 

This year, you will not need to purchase any school supplies for your child.  All school supplies will be provided by the school.

Please be on the lookout for important updates to come regarding the 2020-2021 school year.  These updates will be provided via email, so please make sure to check your email regularly. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at mooreml1@pwcs.edu.  I also regularly communicate with parents through class dojo, so expect to receive invitations to our class page shortly. 

I look forward to seeing everyone on Monday, August 23rd!

Ms. Amanda Smialek

Amanda SmialekHello, my name is Ms. Amanda Smialek and I will be teaching 2nd grade at JJES this fall. This will be my third year here at John D. Jenkins Elementary School!

I graduated from George Mason University where I studied Elementary Education. I completed a yearlong student teaching internship through a partnership with Prince William County Public Schools and I gained valuable teaching experience in grades K-5. 

I received my Master's Degree in Education Curriculum and Instruction with a focus in Elementary Education as well as a BA Integrative Studies from George Mason University. I have also obtained an Associate's Degree in Social Sciences from Northern Virginia Community College as well as an Associate's Degree in Applied Science of Practical Nursing from The Community College of the Air Force.  

I spent the last 14 years serving in the United States Air Force and Air National Guard as a medical technician.

In my free time, I enjoy walking my dogs and watching my daughter play softball. My favorite thing to do is travel the world and share my adventures any chance that I get. I look forward to a wonderful and exciting year at Jenkins Elementary, where I hope to help each student find the leader within themselves!
