Teacher Biography

Welcome to the 2018-2019 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 11th year teaching at East Jackson Schools. I have two children - a 6th grader and 1st grader. We have a dog that is a Bluetick Coonhound who is 2 years old and a Tortoise Shell cat who is 4 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 or call me at East Jackson Elementary- 517-764-1810 with any questions or concerns that you may have throughout the year.

Classroom Notes

Students in Room 100 have participated in activities learning about apples. We learned about Johnny Appleseed through stories and movies. We tasted different apples and graphed our favorite apple. Students also made applesauce in class. They cut the apples and smashed them after they were cooked. We then enjoyed being able to eat the applesauce.


Spelling for the week of October 22nd – 26th. Homework is due Friday, October 26th. Spelling test will take place Friday, October 26th as well.
