Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to third grade! I would like to introduce myself and welcome you and your child(ren) to Lincoln Elementary School Year 2021-2022. My name is Mrs. Jamie Sterling-Hooten, and I will be your child’s third-grade teacher. I have a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Elementary Education and a Kindergarten Endorsement from University of Southern Indiana and a Master’s of Science degree from Indiana University. This is my twenty-fourth year teaching in Indiana. I taught three years in Seymour (Grades 1 & 2), six years in Indianapolis (Grades 2 & 4), and fourteen years here at Lincoln (Reading teacher, Grade 3, Grade 4, & Grade 5). My husband, Tye, and I have two sons. Talon is in the eighth grade at Bedford Middle School, and Tucker is in the third grade at Lincoln Elementary School.
I am very excited to get to know your child this year. My commitment to making this a productive and fun school year will be apparent. I will be communicating with you about classroom activities, your child’s academic and social progress, ways for you to help your child at home, and school events. Bloomz, Google Classroom, Powerschool, e-mail, classroom website, making telephone calls, writing in the nightly agenda, and sending home classroom newsletters will be our main sources of communication. If you would like to meet for a conference in person, please feel free to make an appointment. Please do not hesitate to call or send me an e-mail to communicate. Please send me your E-mail address so that I can add you to the Google Classroom, Bloomz, and Classroom E-mail. I do have a classroom website on Lincoln’s page; however, with the advancements in technology, I find Bloomz and Google Sites much more valuable for parents to help their children. I send home the weekly newsletter and important information weekly. ☺
If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me @ 812-275-6311 or e-mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mrs. Jamie Hooten
