Hello! I am Jeanne McCann. I was born and raised nextdoor in Palo Alto. I recieved my undergraduate degrees at Chico State University in Liberal Studies and Spanish. I studied abroad in Madrid during my junior year and obtained my bilingual teaching credential from San Diego State University. I recieved my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Intervention from Santa Clara University. I am currently completing my Certificate in Reading Intervention from UC Irvine.
I have been a teacher in the Menlo Park City School District since 1997. I started teaching Kindergarten at Laurel. I moved to Oak Knoll in 2004 where I taught EL, Kindergarten and First Grade. In 2009, I made it to Encinal! I spent one year in Third before moving to Secong Grade. In 2016, I moved into my current posistion of Literacy Specialist. I work with an amazing team of dedicated teachers who support our Encinal Eagels.
I have three boys, ages 11, 13 and 25! All of them have been students in MPCSD. I live in San Bruno with my husband, 2 of my boys and our two dogs, Penny and Nugget. I enjoy traveling, hiking, cooking and spending time in our rustic cabin in Arnold, California.
