Hello! My name is Jodi Freeman! This will be my 17th year teaching kindergarten at JES. I am a graduate of Whitwell High School. I received my Associates of Science degree from CSTCC and my Bachelor’s degree from UTC. I have been married to husband Jason for 15 years. We have 5 children together Levi , Gracey , Hayden , Heidi, and Hayes . My family and I love to camp, travel , and go to sporting events . One interesting fact about myself is that I am a registered dental assistant. So during the summers and some of our breaks you may find me working at a pediatric dental office. I love working with kids whether it’s in the classroom or in the dental office. Kindergarten is such a FUN grade to teach! I absolutely love seeing how much they grow physically and academically by the end of the year.
