Hello, My name is Jason R. Hampton. I am so excited to be here in Grants Pass School District. I am a Graduate of Western Govenors University, and I am teaching Second Grade at Riverside Elementary.
My family and I moved to the Grants Pass area this past summer from Whitefish, Montana, and have been enjoying the weather and outdoor activities this area has to offer.
I have a 6 year old son who is a student here at Riverside, and my wife teaches Fifth Grade at Wilson Elementary in the Medford School District.
I have had a life long passion for teaching, but I am new to a classroom setting. In my former years I have been a wilderness youth counselor, mountain guide, and backcountry horseback guide. I have also taught alpine skiing, rock climbing, and was a personal trainer to help me through my current degree for classroom teaching.
My passions have been preparing me for the wonderful opportunity to be in the classroom! I love teaching kids about our amazing world, and give them opportunity to explore it for themselves through reading, writing, Mathematics, science and social studies.. I share my enthusiasm with students to help them grow into the best versions of themselves possible. I strive to create a safe, productive , and positive enviornment where kids can feel comfortable to reach their highest potential and develop a life long passion for learning:)
Thank you parents for giving me the opportunity to be with your student and help them develop into amazing human beings. It is a true honor and privilege to have such opportunity Thank you! Please feel free to contact me through the school email or phone number if you have any questions, comments, or concerns about your student:)
Warmest Regards, Jason R. Hampton
