Mrs. Jennifer Mercedes
Hello Shiloh Generals!
My name is Jennifer Mercedes. I am grateful for the opportunity and excited to be working with you all to help our students grow and learn.
I received my Undergraduate and Master's degrees from The University of Georgia in Early Childhood Education and Educational Administration and Policy, respectively. I taught in Honduras for three years and worked with Migrant Students in Clarke County. In Gwinnett County, I taught first grade for seven years and worked with kindergarten to fifth grade students as an English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) and Early Intervention Program (EIP) teacher.
My career at Shiloh Elementary started as an Assistant Principal in August 2018. During this time, I have been able to build authentic relationships with staff, students, and many community members and live “the Shiloh way” as we address the social, emotional, and academic needs of each and every student. As Principal, I am excited about the opportunity to work together with parents, students, and staff to continually work toward building a stronger community that celebrates our diversity and supports our school’s vision and mission.
At Shiloh Elementary, we have a focus on providing academic opportunities including, but not limited to: Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, Gifted, English as Second Language, Early Intervention Programs, and Computer Science. We also provide extracurricular activities through different clubs, such as the Shiloh Choir, Art Club, STEM Club, Girls on the Run, Coding Club, and Basketball Club. Finally, we encourage the growth of the whole child by providing opportunities for leadership, school dances, International Night, and Black History celebrations.
As parents, please make sure you are connected to the Parent Portal or the Parent VUE app, “MyPaymentsPlus”, and the teachers’ Class Dojo for your student(s). Communication is key and we look forward to working with you.
B.B. King once said, “The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it from you.” This is the foundation that builds our students and communities to strive for their goals and dreams. I know Shiloh Elementary is leading the way! My door is open, so feel free to stop by. Together, we can pave a clear path to success for each and every student.
