Hi! My name is Amy Jernigan, and I'm excited to be teaching reading at Wilkes this year. I live on the island with my husband Keith and our two children Emily and Anna. When I'm not teaching, I enjoy walking, camping, and gardening.
At the University of Hawaii at Manoa, I earned a M.Ed. in Elementary Education with a related field in Language Arts Education and a P.D. in Elementary Education. I also have a B.S. in Speech: Rhetoric and Communication from the University of Oregon. I am endorsed to teach early childhood education, elementary education, and reading. I have experience teaching both elementary and university students as well as supervising student teachers.
