Parenting Page - Mrs. Jamie Gould

My name is Jamie Gould.  I am a mother of 6 children ranging in ages from 23-4, four of which are currently enrolled at Wallace Elementary Middle School.  I am originally from Michigan but have lived in Marlboro County for the past 21 years.  I am passionate about working with the parents of our community and their children.  As an active parent and past Wallace Elementary Middle School PTO President, I have come to understand that parent involvement is key in constructing the foundation for our children to succeed.  My mission is to continue to empower parents to be actively involved in their child's education by providing them with the important information through multiple media and offering various opportunities for parent participation.  At WEMS parents are able to be involved throughout the year by volunteering their talents and abilities, participating in school activities, events, workshops, PTO and SIC (School Improvement Council), Parent Advisory Committee, and much more!  Parents are the most important people in their child's life.  Assisting parents with their needs I believe will also help their children.  I'm here to assure parents that their issues can be heard and addressed effectively.  I kindly welcome and encourage parents to communicate any creative ideas or concerns.  My door is always open.  I value parents and guardians as partners and together we can support our children's needs with the education they deserve.
