Ms. Jaclyn Abernathy

Hello! I am so grateful to be part of the St. Jude community. I am a graduate of Mount Saint Joseph University, where I received my Bachelor's degree in Early Childhood Education and my Ohio Reading Endorsement. Second grade is one of my favorite age groups so I am very happy to be working with these students and their supportive families! Outside of school, I love spending time with friends and family. I enjoy playing sand volleyball, bonfires, and outdoor adventures.

All volunteers and employees are required to complete the electronic/online background check through SELECTION.com prior to beginning their volunteer activity or employment. In addition to the electronic/online background check, employees are required to complete manual fingerprinting and submit a B4 form before begin- ning their employment at an Archdiocesan parish, school, or institution.
