Welcome to Fifth Grade!
Jo Beth Jernigan
Hello fifth graders and parents! You have entered the website of Ms. Jo Beth Jernigan. I am so excited to have you in my class for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year! I have been teaching fifth grade at Grove Park for 27 years. This year is going to start out virtually. I am so disappointed that I can't give my students a hug, and I can only see you on the computer. I am looking forward to when you can walk into the classroom, and I can see all your bright shining faces.
I have lived in Burlington for most of my life. Both my parents were teachers. I have two married daughters and 2 grandchildren and 2 grandfoster children. I live with my five crazy cats that I adore. I love to read. I usually have two books going at one time. I also love to grow flowers, weed, and chop branches!
