Ms. Jessica, as she is known by her students, is a first year teacher at Daniel Webster and a second year teacher all around. Last year she taught language arts at a K-10 bilingual school in San Pedro Sula, Honduras and before that volunteered her summers in college at a special education school in Costa Rica. Jessica graduated from the University of New Mexico majoring in both Spanish and Latin American studies. Jessica gained her interest in being an educator by traveling and seeing what a difference a quality education can make in the lives of children.

Ms. Jessica loves to dance, go to live reggae concerts, play pool, and is an avid hula hooper.
