Mrs. Jaclyn Thorp
Hello and thank you for taking the time to check out our class website. I feel privileged to help develop your child's reading, writing, and language skills and more importantly, truly grow their love for learning this year. I am super excited about teaching at Goshen Creek Elementary and am proud to call myself a Springtown Porcupine.
This is my third year teaching elementary education and I have loved every minute of it. English, Language Arts, & Reading ("ELAR") and Special Education are my current focus areas along with a passion for creating wide-eyed, life-long learners. I graduated college from Texas Wesleyan University with a bachelors in business administration, majoring in economics and finance. My first career in finance included time spent as an Investment Analyst and as an Investment Portfolio Manager supporting both First Command Financial Planning and TD Ameritrade.
A bit about my other love...my family! My fabulous and wonderful husband and I have been married over 12 years and have two beautiful children. Bennett is a brilliant young gentleman who is finding the fifth grade and fall baseball tons of fun. Bexley is our third-grade, passion-filled angel who eats, breathes, and sleeps softball! As a family, we love doing just about anything outdoors and just about everything together.
This is going to be a fantastic Fourth Grade year!
