My name is Jill Standen and I have been enjoying being a teacher since 2002 in Madera Unified. I absolutely love my two kids and wonderful husband. We enjoy living in the country areas of Madera and spending our time together outdoors. I grew up in Mariposa, a small country town near Yosemite and was inspired to teach by my 5th grade teacher, Mr. Bryant. He not only encouraged his students to love reading and writing, he was a teacher who cared about all of us in the classroom. I’ve always loved teaching, I’ve had the pleasure of teaching preschool and Red Cross classes: CPR, first aid, lifeguard training, water safety, and swim lessons. I hope my students will leave my class each day excited to come back the next and learn. I want my students to know that they are cared about and that I want to help them to become life long learners!
