Posted April 14, 2008

I am honored to be part of the Muscatine Community School District and greatful to be a teacher at Jefferson Elementary. We have great leadership from our principal, Mr. Williams as well as a dedicated, caring staff. I wish all students and families in Muscatine could experience the diverse community we have built at Jefferson School. Although not all students may grow up with lots of life experiences, giving children opportunities to grow and learn is a necessity. And that's what our children receive everyday.

I think that Jefferson is one of the best Schools in Muscatine. I went there since Kindergarden through 5th grade. It had some of the best teachers, and a Great principal. But I also think they could have more activities for the students.
