In Petersburg’s elementary school, a new special education teacher plans to integrate movement and music with reading instruction. Lee Ann Jenkins just moved here from Tennessee, and is excited to get to know the Petersburg community. She’ll be teaching kindergarten through second grade special education. She spoke with Katherine Monahan about her teaching philosophy and her plans for the upcoming school year.

First Day of School in Petersburg is Tuesday, (8/30) for most students. 

Kindergarten starts Wednesday (8/31).
