About Jessica

Hello, I'm Jessica and am looking forward to working with you! I have a Bachelor's degree from Bowling Green State University in Music Education. Then attended Trevecca Nazarene University to earn a Master's Degree in Counseling Psychology and also added Elementary Education endorsements to my teaching certificate. A few years later I also added my Guidance Counselor certificate for grades K-12. I am currently about a year away from completing my PhD in Industrial and Organizational Psychology from Capella University.

I have 17 years experience in the classroom from Kindergarten to High School and love teaching all things! In addition this is my 9th year of teaching as an adjunct Professor at the college level. In an effort to get further along on my PhD I have stepped away from full time teaching in the classroom and teaching at the college and tutoring. My philosophy on teaching is it must be engaging and have an element of fun as it is then learned and retained at a higher level. My approach is to introduce, teach, reteach if needed, and allow the student opportunities to practice with guidance and feedback. It is a gradual release approach and the student asking questions along the way is very important. All people have the capacity to learn but we must sometimes fine the unique path of an individual to get there!

I am a certified K-6 teacher (all subjects) in two different states and have taught in the classroom for 17 years. I also have a Music K-12 and Guidance Counselor K-12 certificates. In addition to that I am Highly Qualified in Reading K-8; Language Arts K-8; All subjects K-6; Music K-12. Experience has been in 3 different school districts with the highest teacher evaluation rating at each of them. I have also taught self-contained Gifted.
Aside from all that formal information I love to teach and have many years at the Elementary level! I believe learning needs to have an element of fun and enjoyment or it is not retained as well. Finding what a student enjoys and building on that from an educational perspective often does wonders in academics!


Both my Master’s degree and PhD are in Psychology and have a diverse background in both my education and teaching. I have taught 9 years of Psychology at two different colleges. This is not only a great benefit to teaching Psychology but to all other subjects also. It allows me to be able to better connect and understand others and their learning styles. In my Doctoral work I have advanced courses completed in Statistics, Inferential Statistics, and SPSS.

Since I have a Deaf family member I grew up using American Sign Language. For 9 years I interpreted professionally from everything from Elementary to State Government. Some clients included Dave Ramsey, Al Gore, Keith Urban, and the WWE. I also taught ASL 1, 2, and 3 at the college level for several years as well as private tutoring and lessons.

My life has revolved around teaching and encouraging others to reach their maximum potential! Please feel free to contact me to learn more, ask questions, or schedule. Together we can!
