Hi, I'm Amber Jacques, Special Education Resource teacher at Lynn Road Elementary. Growing up, my mom always tried to make me read the classics like Little Women, The Secret Garden and Wuthering Heights. However, my favorite books were Island of the Blue Dolphin and, Are You There God? It's Me Margaret because the main characters were pretty awesome girls!. Being a teacher was always on my list of adult jobs but at various stages I really wanted to be a lawyer or an architect. My favorite childhood pastime was reading. Apart from taking me on countless adventures, reading also took me away from my numerous cousins and brother. I thought it was the best thing ever!
