Mrs. Jenkerson (MacKinnon)
Hi and welcome!
My name is Mrs. Jenkerson, and I am a 2nd and 3rd Grade English Language Arts and Reading teacher. This is my first year teaching at Bowie, and I could not be more excited to be a part of such an amazing school and district!
I was raised in Houston, Texas by a large, loving family. I attended Texas State University in San Marcos, and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Resource and Environmental Stuides and a Minor in Art. After graduating, I served in AmeriCorps VISTA creating educational manuals for an organization that aimed to empower rural water and wastewater utilities and the communities they serve. When my volunteer term ended, I found myself drawn to childcare and education. I worked summer camps and after-school programs for the City of San Marcos, the City of Austin, and in New Braunfels. For several years after, I worked as Lead Teacher at a preschool facility and as an Education Specialist at a children's museum. Through these engagements, I discovered my true passion - teaching! I enrolled in T.E.A.C.H. (Trainign via e-learning: An Alternative Certification Hybrid), and obtained my Texas Educator Certification in Core Subjects (Grade Levels EC-6). I am thrilled to embark on this school year, which I know will be full of vibrant, enriching learning experiences!
In March, I married my best friend of nine years. We share our home with our amazing dog, Kuma, and love spending time with our family and friends. In my spare time, I enjoy adventuring in the great outdoors, hiking, crafting, and reading.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my love of learning with your children every day!
I am happy to meet with you Monday - Friday 9:05 - 9:50 AM, or by appointment.
