Teacher Biography

Welcome to the 2019 - 2020 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 12th year teaching at East Jackson Schools. I have two children - a 7th grader and 2nd grader. We have a dog that is a Bluetick Coonhound who is 3 years old and a Tortoise Shell cat who is 5 years old. I am a fan of Michigan State University and our family is involved in Hot Air Ballooning. Our family loves Disney and we have been fortunate to travel a few times the past few summers and enjoy family vacations together. 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 katie.macguinness@eastjacksonschools.org or call me at East Jackson Elementary- 517-764-1810 with any questions or concerns that you may have throughout the year.
