Math and Science
Hello parents and students. I am Jennipha Ricks and this will be my 8th year of teaching. I was born and raised in Texas, but I am here because my husband is in the USMC and is stationed at Quantico. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Interdisciplinary Studies (Elementary Education) and a Master of Education in Educational Leadership. I have a Principal Certification as well as an ESOL/ELL Certification. I am certified to teach in Texas, California, and Virginia.
I have a pit bull named Blue who is in Texas with my parents and 4 step-children. In September, my husband and I are expecting a little girl (Savannah) and we are SUPER excited!
My goal for this year is to be able to reach every student that walks into my classroom and to help them see that they are capable of taking responsibility for their own learning and can apply the skills that I provide them in the real world.
"Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid. Example isn't another way to teach, it is the only way to teach." - Albert Einstein
