TEACHER OF THE WEEK--Kamesha Jacques- Fifth Grade Teacher
Hello, my name is Kamesha Jacques, I am so grateful and honored to be the teacher of the week! This is my second year at Chavez Elementary and I am very happy to be a part of a great school!
I was born and raised in Dallas, TX. I graduated from The University of Texas at Dallas, and I am currently in my 12th year of teaching. I worked in Dallas ISD for ten years. I taught elementary for 7 years and middle school for 5 years. I have two beautiful daughters who are the light of my life, Finecia (8 years old) and Kylah (2 years old).
In my spare time I love listening to music, watching documentaries, watching my favorite TV shows and spending time with my family. My abundant love for my two daughters and the great values that my parents instilled in me, keeps me grounded and daily motivated.
As a teacher, I always focus on my purpose as an educator and I work very hard so that my students can reach their greatest potential. One of the joys of being a teacher, is when your students let you know how much they appreciate you. Receiving genuine praise from my kiddos gives me the greatest fulfillment, and that’s when I truly know that I made a difference in their lives.

Coach Johnson with Chloe Hernandez
Chloe raised the most money for the Jump Rope for Heart Event in February. Chavez parents raised over $4000.00 for the American Heart Association. Thank you Chavez families. You are very generous in your giving.
Coach Johnson Kisses the Chicken!
Coach Johnson had to pay up on his bet that if we exceeded our Jump Rope for Heart goal he would kiss a chicken. The goal was $1500. Our Chavez community surpassed it by quite a large margin.
