Hello James Madison Charter Academy. My name is James Harrod and I’m so humbled and excited to be joining JMCA for my first professional year of teaching. I have the privilege of teaching Language Arts and Social Studies to our 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th Graders! I was fortunate enough to gain some experience last year by substitute teaching at JMCA as well as assisting with the EAC program.
A bit about me: I have lived in Colorado Springs for nearly all of my life. I graduated from UCCS with a BA in Communication and, since then, have pursued a career in education. I have a son of my own, River, who will be entering 3rd grade with you. In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, music, film, art, and learning more about different cultures. I’ve always aimed to teach language arts because I am passionate about literature and the stories that shape our world.
I am committed to working together with students, parents, and the whole of the JMCA community to develop as an educator as well as providing the best possible educational experience for our students. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
