2nd Grade

Elizabeth (Jane) Jurkevics 

Ms. Elizabeth Jane Jurkevics   
Hello families!

   I'd like to tell you a little about myself. I moved from Toronto, Canada to Arlington in 1989 and have lived here ever since. I love Arlington and I have enjoyed watching the county grow and change. I have four daughters who attended Arlington County public schools!

    Before returning to college to obtain my teaching certificate I spent seven years as a teaching assistant in Arlington schools. I am a graduate of  Marymount University in Arlington and am now very excited to be a part of Arlington County Public Schools as a teacher. I am even more delighted to be a part of the Barrett community!
    I wish to impart to my students the knowledge that he or she contributes to the world in his or her own way and that each has great worth as an individual. I think Joseph Campbell put it best when he said, “The job of an educator is to teach students to see vitality in themselves.” 
   I am looking forward to a wonderful year with my new students!
   Please note: Though my first name appears on my email (Elizabeth) I would be happy for you to call me Jane (my middle name)!
