My name is Jacqueline Demers. I was born in Schenectady,
New York. I attained a bachelor’s degree in Special
Education & Elementary Education from The College of Saint
Rose in Albany. Before moving to Orange County I taught for
two years in Albany and Troy.
In 2007, I came to Orange County and began working in Goshen. I decided to continue my education and in 2010, I attained a Master’s Degree in Middle School Mathematics from Marygrove College. While at the middle school I have taught a variety of classes, but have been teaching Math for the special education department to 6th, 7th and 8th graders since 2009.
I live in Goshen with my daughter, and my two cats. My daughter, Kylah, is in preschool and is growing up faster than I ever imagined. In my spare time I enjoy going places with her, like the movies or traveling upstate to visit family. I enjoy gardening and making home improvements on my home which I purchased this past summer. My parents still live upstate, but travel to Goshen often to visit.
I love teaching, and I also believe in encouraging my students to volunteer. I have been the Service Club advisor at the Middle School for the last three years. At the beginning of each school year my Service Club members brainstorm ideas of how to give back to the community. In the last few years we have accomplished things like, food drives, volunteering at the Goshen food pantry, volunteering at local preschools, collecting school supplies for underprivileged children, baked and delivered deserts to the local senior citizens, cleaned up the playground at Scotchtown Avenue, and purchased and planted flowers at our other schools.
