Greta Jazdzewski - 3rd Grade

Welcome to the wonderful world of 3rd Grade!

Parents thank you so much for the warm welcome! I cannot believe I have only been teaching at Holy Cross for 3 months. I feel as if I have been here for years! I truly believe that everything happens for a reason and there is a reason I am here. I love teaching more than words could ever even begin to describe. I am honored to be your child's teacher. Thank you for choosing Holy Cross and enabling me to truly live my dream every single day of my life!

February is Black History Month, if your child has any books that pertain to Black History Month I told them that they could bring them in this month.

Students need at least 5 sharpened pencils every day. If possible can you please sharpen all pencils at home.

We are always in need of tissues, if you could send in a box of tissues it would be greatly appreciated; thank you in advance!

A few parents asked if they can send in Valentine's on Friday. Yes, you may just make sure there is one for every child. 3rd grade has 28 students. We will not open them at school due to allergies.

If Josh's mom is reading this, please tell Josh to let me know and he will receive a special prize!

Greta Jazdzewski


Hi! My name is Ms. Greta Jazdzewski. I am the youngest of 3 girls and have 4 nephews! I live in Jenkintown with my 3 year old daughter Bridget. I am a product of Catholic School Education and I truly feel as if it has made me the person that I am today. I went to St. William Elementary School and Cardinal Dougherty High School. I then went onto Kutztown University majoring in Elementary Education with a concentration in Early Childhood. When I am not teaching I enjoy spending time with my daughter Bridget, listening to music, watching movies, shopping and dancing!

I taught 2nd grade at Queen of Peace for 8 years and this is my 1st year teaching 3rd grade at Holy Cross! I love children and teaching is truly my passion! I am living my dream everyday of my life and I honestly do not know how many people can say that? Words alone cannot even begin to express how much teaching and your children mean to me. Thank you for enabling me to truly live my dream! Thank you for choosing Holy Cross!

I told a student that I was very proud of her (as I often do with students), and she said “thank you!” She then said, “when I grow up I can’t wait to become a teacher just like you!” Moments like these are exactly why I do what I do!
