Mrs. Jamie Tuma
I am a Michigan native who has lived in several different areas of our great state including East Lansing, Eaton Rapids, Grand Haven, Muskegon, Mount Pleasant, and most recently in Marquette for 30 years. Now that I am back "below the bridge" I love being a part of the Niles Community Schools family!
In the past I taught kindergarten, 5th grade, worked as the Athletic Director at Marquette Senior High School, and most recently I was the Kinder/1st grade reading interventionist at Ballard Elementary. I am thrilled to be able to use my science major to work with 7th graders at Ring Lardner this year.
My husband and I have three adult children and all of us are outdoor enthusiasts. One of our favorite activities is backpacking and we like to brag that together we all climbed Mt. Whitney, the tallest peak in the lower 48 states!
