Hi there! My name is Jessica and I am currently a sixth year teacher in Midlothian, VA. I taught for two years in North Carolina, working with grades six through nine, before returning home! Currently, I work with middle school students in grades six through eight, as well as special needs learners in special 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 was also the head coach of my schools co-ed cross country team for three years. Currently, I'm coaching 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.
