I am Jennifer Updegraff. I am married to Matt and we have two children, Lanie and Miles. I began my teaching career in 2000 as a first grade teacher. In 2008, I moved to fourth grade. I absolutely love teaching fourth grade! This year I am excited to be team teaching with Mrs. Hubbard. I teach Language Arts and Social Studies, and she teaches Math and Science. I am looking forward to a fantastic year!
I am a 1996 graduate of Petal High School. I graduated from Jones Junior College in 1998 and received my bachelor's degree from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2000. I completed my master's degree in 2011 through the University of West Alabama.
