Ms. Traecy McJilton - "Ms. Traecy"


Global Arts Plus is a fantastic community and I look forward to a great year together!

I've worked in the St Paul school district for many years and have taught Kindergarten, grades 1-8, worked as a Gifted-Talented Specialist, Academic Intervention Specialist, and as a Creative-Critical Thinking Specialist.  Now at GAP, I'm pleased to add Reading Specialist to this list.  Throughout my teaching career, I've been fortunate to teach and work in Puerto Rico, internationally in Nicaragua, and as a Fulbright Scholar in Namibia.  

My family and I live in St Paul, close to the Mississippi River and many lakes.  We delight in time together, being with family and friends, and getting into nature as often as possible.

It is an honor to be a part of your child's educational journey!  I welcome working in partnership with you and look forward to your calls and/or emails, whenever you need to contact me.
