Mrs. Jill Ethridge

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! This is my 15th year teaching at Leyden and my 20th year of teaching. I am a proud member of the Leyden High Schools Special Education Team.  This year I am teaching English III and English IV.  I am also a part-time Facilitator. I have two children (Spencer 11 and Olivia 7), a husband of 15 years, and a spunky Golden Doodle named Penny. When not at Leyden, I can be found on the sidelines of my son's soccer games or driving to and from my kids’ extracurricular activities.  I believe in the power of positive thinking and the value of hard work.
