Welcome Back to the 2022- 2023 School Year
Welcome back Class of 2024!
I am looking forward to success this year! I continue to be here in Room 223 along with Mrs. Jakuba. We are here to answer your questions and be a resource to you at John Jay. In addition, we are right across the hall from our awesome school counseling team, Ms. Rivera and Mrs. Martinez-Rivera.
This is a big year! You are in your Junior Year, which means you will likely encounter questions like, what's next? You will soon be looking at career and possibly college options. I can't wait to hear about your future plans. If you are unsure, come and talk to me, I totally understand. My life has taken many turns! You don't have to know what you want to be or do right now. Just be your best self and work hard.
Being involved with school is a benefit to you for many reasons. Creating bonds with other students will provide lasting memories that you will reflect on for years. Relationships with teachers and advisors can broaden and enrich your own outlook and perspective. Leadership opportunities abound. The skills you try and master in high school in extra-curricular activities will benefit you for years to come. I was very involved in my high school band and I use that experience more often than you might think!
The best way to be connected is to read and listen to our daily announcements. Monitor the Class of 2024 Google Classroom. Many opportunities will come through that communication tool. (PSATs, Prom, College Visits, Scholarships, Internships, Volunteer Opportunity to name a few).
Good luck! Be great! I can't wait to connect with all of you this year!
Wishing you all the best,
