My name is Jackie Puckey and I was born and raised across the river in South Williamsport. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to teach young children. Throughout my teen and young adult years, I spent most of my time babysitting and working at the South Side Pool, where I spent my summers coaching the South Williamsport Summer Swim Team, teaching swim lessons, and working as a lifeguard and eventually Pool Manager. All this experience working with and being around children only helped me realize what I wanted to spend my life doing… teaching and inspiring children and helping them find success.
I graduated from Clarion University in 2006 with a B.S.Ed in Early Childhood Education and received my Masters of Arts in Education from George Mason University in 2012. I worked as a day-to-day substitute teacher in several local schools from June 2006-June 2007 until I moved to Northern Virginia, where I taught Kindergarten for the Prince William County School District from August 2007-June 2013. I moved back to the area during the summer of 2013 where I was lucky enough to be hired here in Loyalsock. I am so excited to be in my eighth year teaching first grade at Schick Elementary!
My husband Jason and I just celebrated nine years of marriage and have two beautiful daughters, Cecilia (3) and Mary (1).
