Growing up in Austin, Texas, Jessica developed a love of science as a child taking nature walks with her mother and exploring the world around her. She further developed her understanding of the natural world while stargazing with her grandfather, exploring national parks, visiting museums of all kinds, and spending extensive time examining the ecosystem in her own backyard.
Jessica graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a Bachelor of Science in Applied Learning and Development. She then earned a Master of Education from the University of Texas at Arlington. She has worked with children for over 15 years in different capacities and also has experience working as an analyst in a microbiology lab. Certified in teaching special education, she currently works with elementary students whose learning needs are outside the standard curriculum. She is deeply committed to helping every child develop a love of learning and the confidence to take academic risks. No matter what subject she is teaching, she always works science into her lessons to pique kids’ interest.
When not teaching, Jessica spends time with her three school-age children, who are also quite interested in the natural world. The family loves to hike, camp, visit museums, and have “science days” where they pick a topic and research it in the library. Jessica also enjoys traveling, crafting, reading, and experimenting in the kitchen. A lifelong Texan, she looks forward to making the move to the East Coast within the next few years.
