Teacher Biography

Welcome to the 2020 - 2021 school year.

My name is Katie MacGuinness. I would like to share a little bit about myself. I am an alumni of East Jackson Schools. I graduated from EJ in 1996. I also graduated from Eastern Michigan University. This is my 18th year teaching and 13th year teaching at East Jackson Schools. I have two children - an 8th grader and 3rd grader. We have a dog that is a Bluetick Coonhound who is 4 years old (Sayde), a Tortoise Shell cat who is 6 years old (Cupcake) and we have just recently added a bunny rabbit and 2 guinea pigs to our home. I am a fan of Michigan State University and our family is involved in Hot Air Ballooning. Our family loves Disney. I am excited to start this school year and look forward to working with you and your child. I look forward to a great year with lots of learning.

I believe that communication with parents is very important so that we can work together to give your child the best education possible. Please free to contact me at or call me at East Jackson Elementary- 517-764-1810 with any questions or concerns that you may have throughout the year. You may also reach me on the contact page on this webpage or through SeeSaw.
