Ms. Jernigan

My name is Ms. Jernigan. I started my teaching career at the Primary Academic Center, where I taught first, second, and third grades. During that time, I worked with the best teachers in the profession, who I consider family.

I am beginning my 11th year at PHJH. I taught 6th grade ELA for 7 years. I have a bachelor’s degree in English Literature, a master’s degree in Instructional Leadership, a master’s degree in reading as a Reading Specialist, along with a master's in Educational Administration.  I am also a Certified Gifted Educator. This year I will continue as the Academic Dean for the Junior High.

I strive to give the best education possible to our children at Prairie Hills Junior High School. I have high expectations for all our students and require that they show effort and pride in their work and themselves.                       

The only thing in your control is effort. That's all and that's everything. - Mark Cuban
