    "At Hammond Eastside, I show integrity, confidence, and curiosity in learning. CHANGE begins with me!"


    My name is Mrs. Jenna Ott.  I received a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership, both from Southeastern Louisiana University.  I taught first grade for six years at Midway Elementary and a then worked as an Administrative Assistant for three years at that same school. In 2010, I went back to the classroom to teach first grade again. In 2011, during my 11th year of being an educator, I was hired to work as a 1st/2nd grade Montessori teacher at Hammond Westside Montessori. Then in 2014, I started teaching 1st grade at Hammond Westside Montessori until December of 2015. Starting in January 2016, I was hired to be a PK-2nd grade Curriculum Coach at Hammond Eastside Magnet.    

    My philosophy in education as always been that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring, and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially.  It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential in these areas by providing an environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and invites a sharing of ideas. Therefore, I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with teaching to enhance curriculum and instruction. My ultimate goal is to be able to help teachers on a daily basis which in turn increases student achievement. My overall passion for teaching and learning will be share with all at Hammond Eastside Magnet School.
