Hello CJDS friends and family! I want to take a quick minute or two to let you know a little bit about me. My name is Jadyn Woodson, but at CJDS I go by “Ms. Jadyn.” I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Special Education from Appalachian State University in 2005. I am married and do not have any children of my own, but I do have a “fur baby” named Georgia. She’s my seven-year-old dog and my students get to know about her because I often use her as a character in my stories. I also have two nieces and one nephew. I adore them and will often talk about them to my students. So if you happen to hear about Lilly, Hayes, or Anderson (Andi) – that’s who they are. I am a huge Panthers fan and will go to as many games a year as I can! I also enjoy going to the White Water Center or going out to dinner with friends and family.
I began teaching at CJDS in 2006, in the Ein Gedi program. I have also had the opportunity to teach 2nd and 3rd grade here at CJDS. I have been in 1st grade for a few years now and absolutely love it! Watching the growth and happiness in each student as the year progresses is truly a blessing and a joy. I love this school and everything it stands for.
I believe that a classroom needs to have an even balance of fun and structure. It’s important to me that my students feel safe at school. They need to trust me and know that I respect them. I want each child to feel special and proud of themselves and their accomplishments at school. I also think that teacher/parent/student communication is very important to the overall school experience. I look forward to a year full of learning, playing, and fun!
