Jackee Clodio's Bio
Jackee Clodio joins CCA with over 30 years teaching experience. She has spent time in the Pacific Union, in public school administration and instruction as will as 15 years at Captain Gilmer Christian School in Fletcher, NC.
Born on the island of Cyprus while her parents were missionaries, Mrs. Clodio grew up at Pacific Union College where she received her B.S. in Liberal Studies and her Masters of Arts in Reading. Ensuring that each student she teaches has the opportunity to be life-long reader is a trademark of this experienced educator.
Miss Jackee is passionate about encouraging each student to find the connection between writing and reading and understanding the important roles they play not only in their academic journey, but also their value in each of their spiritual journeys.
Sharing her love of Bible Journaling with her students opens many doors for helping and interacting with students as well as providing her a connection to demonstrate how this activity helps to grow creatively and spiritually.
Jackee shares her home with her two fur babies, Kai, a miniature schnauzer and Reef, a 60 lb. Goldendoodle. Her son Daren and his family live in Oklahoma. Where she is “BG” (Best Grandma) to 2 year old Oliver.
As you can tell by the names of her “boys” the water has a huge influence in Jackee’s life. The solitude and ebb and flow of the beach uplifts her soul and inspires her spiritually, physically and opens her heart in ways unparalleled by anything other than the Bible.
Investing in students and ensuring their growth in all aspects of their lives is a gift Miss Jackee offers all her students, she remains in close touch with innumerable students from her years in the classroom. Miss Jackee and her love for her students reaches well beyond the walls and halls of any school where she has been blessed to serve.
It is with an excited sense of following God’s plan for her life that Miss Jackee finds her way to Ohio and an anticipatory eagerness with which she anxiously awaits August 19 as she begins teaching homeroom 4/5 and 4-8 Reading, Language, History and Art, opening a new chapter and adventure at CCA.
