Hi! My name is Jennifer Choken and I am the fifth grade math teacher at Fair Grove Elementary School. I joined the Fair Grove team last year when I relocated to North Carolina from Florida. I started teaching in 2007 after earning my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Florida Gulf Coast University. I have also earned two endorsements while working in Florida - a gifted endorsement and an ESOL endorsement (English speakers of other languages). I have taught almost every grade in an elementary school setting, including Kindergarten and working at the intermediate level is where my heart is.
Teaching is definitely my passion and educating your child is a privilege. I have high expectations for all of my students and I believe that every single one of them can achieve their goals. My own professional goal is to make it home to the dinner table every night because I know that if what happened at school was engaging enough that it became part of your dinner conversations, then your child will be excited to return to the classroom the next day.
I look forward to working with all of the fifth grade Fair Grove families this year and I encourage you to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. This will be the best school year ever!
