Math Specialist

Math Rocks!


     Welcome!  My name is Jenna Gobin and I am so happy to be a part of the Driggers Support Staff.  I will work with students in small groups based on the needs of our students and our campus.  I will also support teachers and grade levels by helping to plan lessons that teach for a higher mathematics understanding.  Additionally, I will visit classrooms to demonstrate lessons and team teach with the classroom teachers.  Our goal at Driggers is to have every student achieve a more conceptual understanding of math so they will be better prepared for their future.    I believe that every child has an opportunity to learn and it is my job to help find out what works for each child.       

     Here is a little information about me.  I am originally from Austin, Minnesota; also known as SPAMTOWN USA.  I have lived in Kansas, Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, and now Texas.  I graduated college from Winona State University in Minnesota, with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education with Middle School Math.  This is my eighth year of teaching.  Teaching has always been a part of my life.  My mother is a teacher and was even my computer teacher in school.   My husband is also a 4th grade teacher here in Northside. 

     In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, especially my dog Maggie.  I also enjoy playing and watching sports and movies.  My favorite teams are the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears, and the Iowa Hawkeyes!! GO CUBS GO!!
