Hi there! I'm Jessica and I am currently a fifth year teacher. I taught for two years in a Title I charter school in North Carolina, working with grades six through nine. I am currently in Midlothian, VA working with sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students, as well as special needs learners in adapted physical education. In addition to teaching, I love coaching! I've been the head coach for three JV sports including boys soccer, girls basketball, and girls soccer. I currently coach cross country and girls soccer at the middle school level.
I am a big proponent of cooperative learning, cross curricular activities, and lively classroom discussions. I incorporate Kagan structures into my health and PE classroom, as well as the principles of multiple intelligence. Learning should be fun, hands on, and interactive with others.
