Hello! My name is Jackie Tate. I am known to some of my older students as Ms. Tallent, but am newly wed since 2016. I have been teaching for 25 years in Monroe County, at Vonore Elementary School. This is my home and I wouldn't want to teach anywhere else. I have taught grades K-3 during my tenure at VES. I spent 15 years in Kindergarten, and am now in 3rd grade teaching ELA and Social Studies.
I have three children, two sons and a daughter, who are my pride and joy. Ages 26, 21, and 15. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, scuba diving, and riding my motorcycle.
