Mrs. Jill Stauffer

WELCOME!  I am thrilled to be your child's 3rd grade teacher!  I have had a variety of experiences as an educator, a calling which I value and adore. Among those experiences are teaching 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grades. I also taught 4-year-old preschool while I stayed home with my boys as a full-time mom for five years. I am humbled and honored to serve as the LMES Teacher of the Year for the 2020-2021 school year. Even though this year will look and feel like no other, I look forward to an exciting and productive year as we learn and work TOGETHER!


I was born in Michigan, but I got here as fast as I could {A.S.A.P. = As Southern As Possible}! I am a proud product of District Five schools myself, which is where I also completed my student internship.  I graduated from the University of South Carolina {GO GAMECOCKS!} with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Spanish.


My husband and I cherish our two boys, ages 19 and 16. In my free time I enjoy reading, gardening, baking, decorating, biking, walking, and spending time with my family outside at the lake or beach.


I hope to inspire my students to have a strong sense of community, appreciate each other's differences, be skilled problem solvers, and to be the very best they can be while becoming lifelong learners.  Thank you for entrusting your child to me.  Next to motherhood, I believe I have the best job in the world! Looking forward to empowering our learners together!
