This will be Jessica’s fourth year teaching preschool. Before she became a teacher, she served in the Navy for 20 years as a paralegal.After she retired from the military, she got her multiple subject (elementary school) teaching credential from San Diego State University. She did a year of student teaching in fifth grade, and then worked for a year as a substitute teacher for all elementary and middle school grades. It was this experience that helped her realize that she especially enjoys watching the youngest students blossom and grow as learners, which is what led her to teaching preschool.She has three children, a son who is currently serving in the Navy, a daughter who is a high school Spanish teacher, and a daughter in middle school. In her free time she likes playing with her dogs, golfing and crafting.
