Mrs. Jillian Begley
Hello! My name is Jillian Begley and I will be your fifth grade teacher for the 2018-2019 school year. I am originally from NY, and go back to visit yearly to see my family and friends. I went to Siena College, in upstate NY, where I received a bachelor of arts in English and Dowling College where I recieved a masters of science in Elementary Education. I moved down to North Carolina after I got my teaching degree in 2006. I started my first teaching job in 6th grade at HJ MacDonald Middle School, where I taught language arts and social studies for 10 years!
What an amazing 10+ years in North Carolina: I got my first teaching job in 2006, married my college sweetheart in 2009, had my first baby boy in 2011, bought a house in 2012, had my second baby boy in 2016, and changed from middle school to elementary school in 2017!
Last year was my first year teaching 5th grade and I loved it so much so here I am excited to start year 2 as a 5th grade teacher! I am so excited to be here and know that it will be an AWESOME year! I am looking forward to another exciting and rewarding year here at BME!!
