Hello, and welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!
My name is Mrs. Palcko, and I'm looking forward to beginning my 5th year at JHS, during which I will be teaching AP Language & Composition and Accelerated English 11. A little about myself: I grew up in North Canton, and graduated from the University of Akron in 2014 after earning an M.A. in English Literature and an M.S. in Curricular & Instructional Studies with a focus on AYA Language Arts. After graduating, I began teaching at JHS the following Autumn, and have immensely enjoyed my teaching career so far.
While teaching at Jackson, I have also gotten involved in Jackson High's first creative writing team! Our talented team of writers took 3rd in the county at the inaugural PenOhio competition; in 2017 two of our varsity writers placed 2nd and 6th in the region, and our JV team placed 4th in their competition; in 2018 we won the Grand Regional Champion trophy, and sent seven writers to States!
If you should have any questions or concerns throughout the school year, please do not hesitate to contact me - my door is always open.
