Mrs. Jessica Runkle
My name is Jessica Runkle. I graduated form Charleston Southern University in 2006 with a Bachelors in Early Childhood Education. I also received my Masters in Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment from Walden University in 2011. This is my fourteenth year teaching and all of them have been here at Varnville Elementary. I have two years experience in first grade, ten years in Kindergarten, and am currently in my second year of Reading Recovery/Intervention/ESOL. I am excited to teach my sturggling students some new strategies that will help them feel more successful as readers and writers. I want to help them have an attitude that they can do anything they set their mind to if they believe in themselves.
I have also been with my high school sweetheart Jacob for 20 years. We have been married for 13 of those years. We have two beautiful children. Jake is in 5th grade at Hampton Elementary and Jocelyn is in 1st grade at Varnville Elementary. We enjoy spending time together by being outdoors hunting and fishing. We also enjoy taking our boat to the river on hot summer days and traveling as much as we can. We enjoy making memories with our family and friends that will last a lifetime.
