Jill Palmer

3rd Grade

After graduating from Centreville High School, I attended Western Michigan University and pursued a Bachelor of Science degree with minors in elementary education, science, English, and early childhood.  I completed my internship in first grade with Mrs. Mary Sullivan at Galesburg-Augusta Primary! Following graduation I taught first grade in Saranac, Michigan. After a successful first year, I decided to make a big change and moved to southern California.  While in California, I taught for the Corona-Unified School District.  My experience there includes: second, third, and fifth grade. I earned my Masters of Science degree in educational leadership/administration from California State University, Fullerton.  In 2007, I returned to Kalamazoo, Michigan.  I spent five years teaching middle school language arts for the Battle Creek Area Catholic Schools.  

I currently live in Portage, Michigan with my two beautiful children...Hayden and Hannah.  I am thrilled to be teaching at the G-A Primary School!
