Hello, I’m Ms. Jess and I have been a teacher at Cherokee Heights/SPPS since 2016. I love the West Side and the families we have here at Cherokee Heights. I feel close to our families, the children I see every day, and close to all the wonderful educators I work alongside. Our classroom is always one that works together and cares for others around us. I love taking the interests of children and incorporating them into reading and math lessons as often as I can.
At home, I live with my partner Alan and our 2 children, Julian and Leo. We also live with two wonderful dogs that are a huge part of our family. I love playing in the yard with Leo while he runs around the yard with our dogs. I also love going for hikes with my family and baking new foods/breads. Julian loves creating in his science lab, and playing Minecraft as well as building new things with Leo from cardboard boxes left around our house. :)
I like staying active & healthy in my life, so I can always be present for my own children and the children I see every day at school. I feel privileged to be learning and growing alongside the children of the West Side. Please know you can contact me with anything. I am well connected with families. I do prefer email if you are contacting me during the school day. It is rare that I am able to answer the phone during the day.
