Mrs. Jackie Higgins

Hello, I'm Jackie Higgins. I love being a reading specialist at Glenridge elementary! I primarily work with students in 3rd-5th grades to develop literacy skills and grow their love of reading. I love to read books, talk about books, and shop for books!! I also enjoy helping students find joy in writing. I strive to be a lifelong learner. I completed my Bachelor of Science in Education and Master of Science in Classroom Teaching from Missouri Baptist University. I also obtained a Master of Arts in Reading from Webster University. I am currently pursuing a Dyslexia Graduate Certificate from Lindenwood University. In my free time, I love to spend time with my husband, Greg, and our two boys, Logan and Tyson, who are students at Wydwon Middle School.
