• Hello Families!

    Welcome to Kindergarten! I am excited to be working with your child this year!

    Knowing that all children can succeed, I will do everything I can in order to help meet the needs of your child. I began teaching at Mark Twain School in 2007. Throughout my time at Mark Twain School, I have taught Kindergarten, first grade, second grade and multiage classes. 
    This year may look unlike a typical year at school, but be assured that I will do all I can to ensure your child's safety, social and emotional well-being, and continued growth in academics. I thank you, in advance, for the support you will provide at home by making time for your child to read and listen to books, practice math skills and be prepared to learn and be a friend each day. 

    Your child’s success depends on the commitment from him/her, the family and the teacher. Please feel free to contact me by way of notes, phone calls or emails. I check my email daily from the classroom as well as from home. The classroom phone number is: 847-493-8650.  My email address is: jholm@emsd63.org 

    At East Maine School District 63, we believe in empowering all students to succeed in a changing world. I look forward to partnering with you to help make your child’s school year successful.
