My name is Jessica Garbacz. The 2019-2020 school year is my 13th year teaching. I have taught a variety of content areas and grade levels (K-8) in general education and special education. As a special education teacher I enjoy teaching reading, writing, math, and social skills. This is my 7th year teaching special education in the Anoka-Hennepin School District. I graduated with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a Masters degree in Education from the University of Minnesota. I then obtained graduate certificates in Special Education from Minnesota State University Moorhead in the areas of Specific Learning Disabilities and Emotional/Behavioral Disorders. I love working with children and enjoy helping my students learn each day!
I live in Linwood with my husband and our 3 children, ages 7, 4 and 1. Being with my family brings me a lot of joy! I enjoy playing with my children and watching them grow. I also enjoy hobbies such as going for walks, reading, fishing, boating, camping, swimming, and visiting with friends.
Thank you for supporting your student's education! I am excited to work with your child and watch their growth. Together we can help your child achieve success!
