Mrs. Jamie Keefer

Hello Parents and Students:      

   I am elated to a part of the KD Markley Community and the Great Valley School District.  I have been an educator for 13 years, and this is my third year teaching fifth grade K.D. Markley Elementary School. 

I earned my Masters Degree from Cabrini College in Elementary Education with a focus in Reading and a certification as a Reading Specialist. I recieved my undergradate degree from Lock Haven University. I am continuing my education currently at Immaculata University. 


Background Information about Me.... 

    I grew up in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, not too far from Pittsburgh. It's a small, rural town but one that I still think of as home.  Shortly after graduating from College, I moved to Maryland where I taught two years in Washington County. Later on, I moved to West Chester and married my husband, Joe. Together we have two wonderful, energetic boys.  I am learning so much from my children and what it means to be a supportive, caring parent and a teacher. I love being outside with my family, hikes, being near the water (beach or a lake) and creating new experiences. My hope is find ways to give back and show my own children the importance of giving back to others.
