Breana Jacques

My name is Breana Jacques and I am elated to be at Ramsey Middle School! It is a true pleasure to be in a great community of families and educators. I am teaching 8th Grade Global Studies, an exciting course focusing on the complexities and interconnectedness of our world from 1950 to the present. My teaching philosophy is student centered that encourages students to pose questions to one another in order to deepen their ability to inquire critically about everything around them. Further, I strive for my students to value structure, accountability, and creative freedom in the classroom.

Originally from Houston, Texas, I earned a BA from the University of Minnesota as well as a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from the same university. My teaching license is for grades 5-12 in Social Studies.

I love traveling and have spent significant time abroad in South Africa, Tanzania, Kenya, Austria, and Germany. I look forward to bringing my world experiences to the classroom!
