Jean Avecilla

Welcome to Room 113!

 Hi! My name is Jean Avecilla. I started teaching in the Minneapolis district in 1993. I have  spent the majority of my teaching career teaching 1st and 2nd grade. I have been at  Armatage since 2003. I have loved seeing the Armatage community work together to create  a school we can all love. A goal I have each year is to nurture a kind, caring community in  Room 113! We become a supportive family for one another, and I enjoy seeing the bonds  made between friends.  

I love watching children get excited about learning! I especially love teaching geography and  biology. We “travel” around the world in our morning meetings and learn how to greet one  another in different languages. I also enjoy teaching about life cycles of different animals – monarchs, mealworms, frogs, fish, chicks, and other animals will often find their way in our  classroom! 

A little more about myself

I grew up in central Wisconsin, so I love the Packers, the Badgers, and all things cheesy. I  have been living in Minneapolis since 1991. I have 2 daughters – Gabby (college student in Chicago) and Eloise (Southwest High School student) and Arthur (our squirrel-chasing  rescue dog that is all muscle, bucket head, and drool). 

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin - Madison with a BA in Italian. I received my  Elementary Education certification through the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities, my  Montessori certification through the College of St. Catherine's in Minneapolis, and my  Masters in Curriculum and Instruction from Concordia University in Portland. 

When I am not teaching, I love finding fun recipes! I love cooking and baking. I enjoy  cooking because of my mom. I love eating her Filipino food! I also enjoy walking our dog  and spending time with my daughters as much as possible. We love watching football and  movies and finding fun places to discover together!
