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 or call me at East Jackson Elementary- 517-764-1810 with any questions or concerns that you may have throughout the year.
