Teacher Biography

Welcome to the 2021 - 2022 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 19th year teaching and 14th year teaching at East Jackson Schools. I have two children. My daughter Savannah is a Freshman at East Jackson Secondary School and my son Jayden is a 4th grader at East Jackson Elementary. We have a dog named Sayde that is a Bluetick Coonhound, a Tortoise Shell cat named Cupcake who is 6 years old, a bunny rabbit named Scooby and 2 guinea pigs named Pipsqueak and Peanut. 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.
