My name is Jamie McCaffrey, and I currently teach 4th grade at Jefferson Elementary. I have taught in years past in the Salem-Keizer and Lebanon School Districts. However, I cannot begin to express just how happy I am to have landed in Jefferson.
I grew up in Canby, Oregon, another fairly small town in and of itself. In those days, I was able to thrive and grow in my youth; in large part due to a wonderful community that supported kids, as well as schools. As an adult, it has been my desire to give back in a way that is even greater than that which I received.
Jefferson is the community in which I am very proud and honored to serve, as I see the same passion and kindness in this town as that which I had grown up with. From the leader of our school, to the amazing staff in which I get to work with, this place has quickly become a home for my family and I. More importantly, I am beyond grateful that you parents share your wonderful children with us. I could not think of a greater way to spend a career, than by helping shape and mold the future of Jefferson itself. I hope and pray that I live up to the example set by this community. Thank you so much for all that you do.
