Welcome to Bohn Elementary School, home of the Sharks! My name is Jacqui Nott and I am fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity to serve as the new principal.
I am beyond thrilled and filled with eagerness to join the Bohn Sharks family. I am looking forward to building relationships with all of you and learning the individual and collective gifts our students, staff and families bring to the Bohn team. I believe school success comes from all of us cooperating and working together - being that village that raises our children.
It is my goal to lead and support Bohn in meeting our District goals which are: 1. Provide a safe and equitable learning environment for all students and staff and 2. Prepare all students for college and careers and ensure all students meet grade level standards with a focus on closing the achievement gap between all student groups using accelerated learning and tiered supports.
I was born and raised in Tracy and grew up just down the road from Bohn school, where much of my family still lives. This town and community are near and dear to my heart and my roots run very deep. My grandparents came here from Mexico and I am very proud of my Hispanic culture and family. My parents instilled in me the importance of education and I became the first in my family to graduate from college. I attended McKinley Elementary, Monte Vista and Clover Middle and Tracy High Schools. I attended the University of The Pacific where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies and a Bilingual Cross-Cultural Credential in Spanish. I began teaching at 21 years old, almost 34 years ago. I continued my formal education as I taught and have a Master of Science in Education from Cal State East Bay and an Administrative Credential from Cal State Stanislaus.
In Tracy, I have been a classroom teacher at Central, Jacobson and Freiler Schools. Most recently, I worked as a substitute teacher, curriculum specialist, instructional coach and I also served as President of Tracy Educators Association. Working in these roles after decades of classroom teaching reinforced and refined my awareness of and passion for the need to be a strong champion and voice for all students and those that support them in our school communities.
Please stop in or call to make an appointment to get to know one another, discuss any concerns, suggestions, appreciations, raves or ideas to make Bohn even better for our students. I look very forward to getting to know you!
