Mr. Jemison

Hi everyone! I'm Mr. Jemison. I'm honored to teach English Language Arts (ELA) to our 4th and 5th grade students at MSEEC. I grew up in Chattanooga, but Memphis has always had a special place in my heart since I have lots of family in the city. I graduated from Stanford University in June 2021 and joined Teach for America the next day. TFA brought me back to Memphis – and to MSE! 
I'm so excited to work alongside you and your kids. I want to work closely with families so we can provide every child the best possible education catered to their needs and interests. Please email me at [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns.

When homework is assigned, it will be clearly communicated to students in advance. Unless stated otherwise, homework is due the day after it is assigned
If a student is absent, they are responsible to make up any work they missed. For each day they miss, they have one extra day to make up the assignment. Please have your student come see me to collect any work they missed after they return from an absence
