Degrees and Certifications:
Miss Jenny. Gottschalk
I was born in Detroit, Michigan and moved to Augusta with my mom and sister when I was 13. I attended Sego Jr. High and Butler High School. I have two children and two grandsons, all of whom are the loves of my life. My daughter, Erika, is 34. She is happily married and my grandsons are her children. Their names are Gavin, who is nine, and Jase, who is almost two years old. My son, Zacharie, was 27 when he passed away suddenly in 2013.
I am a special education teacher. I have been teaching for 25 years. I attended Augusta College (currently Augusta University) where I majored in Spanish with a minor in early childhood education. However, mid way through my college career, I changed my major to special education with a minor in Spanish and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Education. While a student there, I made the Dean's List several times. I was also a member of the Spanish Club and worked at the daycare that was on campus at the time, where my children stayed while I attended classes.
As a member of the Windsor Spring Faculty I am dedicated to the success of my students and our school. You will often see my car in the parking lot long after school is over as I stay and work on many different things. I love to create a wide variety of activities that help my students work on and master their IEP objectives. Their success is my great pleasure. I love my students and I love seeing that "light bulb" go off when they get it.
My door is always open to my parents. I feel the relationship between teacher and parent is just as important as the relationship between teacher and student. After all, we both have the same goal in mind: to work toward preparing your child for life in the real world.
