Assistant Principal/Instructional Supervisor
My name is Jessica Javo. I was born and raised in Effingham County. My journey as a teacher began at South Effingham High School in 2003, when I was able to come to South Effingham Elementary as part of one of my high school classes. I had the privilege of working with Mrs. Cynthia Exley’s third grade class, and it was there that I would experience the first sparks that ignited the flame what would become my passion for educating children. Upon graduating from Armstrong Atlantic State University in 2008, I began my journey as a teacher at Sand Hill Elementary. In 2012, my mother, Cheryl Christain, retired after being principal of SEES for 21 years, and our current principal (then a third grade reading teacher), Anna Barton, became an Instructional Supervisor at Springfield Elementary. Mrs. Barton’s transfer left an opening for me to come home to SEES, the very school I got my start in as an elementary school student so many years ago. I taught third grade reading here for five years. During that time, my husband and I received our greatest blessing, our daughter Katelyn. Also, during that time, I received my Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction, completed my gifted certification, and participated in our county's Aspiring Leaders program. In July of 2017, I became the new Instructional Supervisor/Assistant Principal here at SEES and received my Education Leadership certification from Valdosta State University shortly thereafter.
I believe that South Effingham Elementary is an incredible school filled with passionate, skilled teachers and wonderful parents and students. I am so proud to be a Mustang, and I am thrilled to work with our students, teachers, and administrators to continue the tradition of excellence here at SEES in the years to come.
