Jamie Jury

Jamie Jury is excited to join the WFBSNS team this year.  She has a BS in Early Childhood and Special Education from UW Stevens Point.  She previously spent nine years with the Hamilton School District in Sussex WI as a special education teacher and worked for a year in Day Care.  She lives in Wauwatosa with her husband, Brett, and their daughter, who will also be joining the school this year.  When not at school she enjoys reading, hanging out in the backyard, and finding new places to explore with her two year old.  Her favorite thing about teaching is guiding children in their genuine desire to learn, explore their community, and to build relationships with those around them.
