My name is Jessica Garbacz. The 2017-2018 school year is my 11th 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 5th 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, MN with my husband, and our 5 year old son and our 2 year old daughter. 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 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!
