About Jessica


Bio

I have been a middle and high school teacher for over 8 years. I was a college athlete, so I understand the complexities of managing work school and sports. I also sing professionally and have young sons who I stay very active with. I find students most enjoy my witty sense of humor and my ability to relate to young people and current issues of the millennial generation.

I know I am partial but I believe that ELA is the most important subject, especially for college bound students....

I have been a middle and high school teacher for over 8 years. I was a college athlete, so I understand the complexities of managing work school and sports. I also sing professionally and have young sons who I stay very active with. I find students most enjoy my witty sense of humor and my ability to relate to young people and current issues of the millennial generation.

I know I am partial but I believe that ELA is the most important subject, especially for college bound students. Strong ELA skills are highly transferable skills that allow students to access complex materials and glean imperative knowledge in any subject area. These skills help students to make deep inferences and connections that they can express though conversation, argument and coherent writing. There is almost know subject of higher learning that does not require strong ELA skills.

I am a licensed professional teacher with several years teaching experience. I have been teaching in urban school districts where I have honed my craft of teaching rigorous literacy skills to students who enter the classroom below grade level. I am dual certified in Special Education and English and I have been able to use my knowledge to create highly academic learning experiences that are authentic and meet the learning needs and interests of my students while also preparing them to be 21st century learners.

I have a minor in Spanish so I am highly proficient and am more than capable of teaching middle school and high school level Spanish.
