Hello from my Physical Education classroom at NJE! My name is Emily Forrester and I am so excited to be teaching another year at North Jackson Elementary! As I look forward to another school year with your child, I want to tell you a little about myself.
I graduated from Glasgow High School and attended Western Kentucky University. I earned a Bachelors Degree in Physical Education and a Masters Degree in Library Media and Technology. I currently hold a Rank I, as well. I began my teaching career in Smyrna, TN at Thurman Francis Elementary as a PE teacher. After moving back home, I continued my career as a Librarian and Reading Recovery Specialist in Metcalfe County where I taught for 5 years. I then came to the Barren County School District to teach Library and Art at Austin Tracy Elementary. After teaching there for one year, I came to North Jackson to teach Library and PE and have been here since our school opened. It is hard to believe that I will begin my 12th year of teaching.
I live in Glasgow with my husband, Jim, and two daughters, Caroline and Maude. To "Sharpen My Saw" I love to exercise, read, and hang out with family and friends. To "Find My Voice" I enjoy singing in our church's Praise Team at Highland Hills Community Church.
Welcome to another wonderful school year!
