Hello Tornadoes! My name is Jacqueline Macejewski, and I’m extremely grateful to be a part of the Alcoa Community. This is my fifth year teaching in Alcoa, and my 13th overall. I am originally from a small farming town in Michigan, and spent the first 8 years of my career there teaching 2nd and 3rd grade as well as coaching basketball, volleyball, and track. My husband is originally from Sevierville, TN and after many long winters in Michigan we decided to move to Tennessee so we could be close to his family. After graduating from Saginaw Valley State University with my teaching degree, I went on and earned a Master's Degree from Carson-Newman University and my Educational Specialist Degree from Lincoln Memorial University in Curriculum and Instruction. Just like my students, I believe we all are lifelong learners! I am excited about the tremendous opportunities that Alcoa provides its staff and students, and I look forward to my role in developing our students into LEADERS.
