Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ms. Jess, and this is now my third year here at J.J. Hill Montessori. Previously to this work, I taught three years at Crossroads Montessori, and have been with the St. Paul School Distrct as a substitute teacher since 2006. I chose to teach in a Montessori school because I love the idea of following the child with education, teaching with hands-on materials, and helping the student be a lifelong learner. I earned my Montessori Certification through Midwest Montessori Teacher Training Center in Chicago in 2012. I throughly enjoy learning with my colleges, the students and their families here at J.J. Hill and feel very fortunate to be able to work at a school that is an International Peace Site. On my free time, I enjoy cooking, biking, listening to music, reading, hanging out with my eleven year old son and my german shepherd. I love gardening and being anywhere near the water!
