Meet the Teacher
Welcome to 8th grade at Minersville Jr/Sr High School! My name is Jill Freeman, and this is my fifth year working at Minersville Jr/Sr High School. I am the 8th grade learning support teacher, and follow the students throughout the school day to support them in their core classes. As a learning support teacher, I work with the core content teachers in the co-teacher role. I work closely with the content area teachers to assist in the modification of materials to best meet the learners' needs.
I am a 2010 graduate of Pottsville Area High School. I attended Temple University for my post-secondary education. While at Temple University, I was accepted into an accelerated masters program, where I took graduate level classes as an undergraduate student. I graduated from Temple University in 2014 with a B.S. in Early Childhood Education and in 2015 with a M.Ed. in Special Education. While working for Minersville Area School District, I enrolled at Arizona State University Online. I completed coursework while teaching to earn a M.Ed. in Instruction and Curriculum (Applied Behavioral Analysis). I hold current Pennsylvania Instructional II certification in early childhood/ elementary education (PK-4) and Special Education (K-8) with an endorsement in Autism Support.
From a young age, I have always been in and around the water. In my free time, I am Blue Mountain High School's assistant swim coach. I am also a certified American Red Cross Water Safety and Lifeguard Instructor. I also love to travel abroad and see as many countries as possible!
I am looking forward to a great year with great students! Remember, "Strive for progress not perfection!"
