Creating learning experiences that are engaging and thought provoking is Jessica’s specialty. Students in her classroom have engaged in several problem-based learning activities that have challenged students to use their understanding of scientific concepts to solve problems, ranging from replacing fluorescent lights in the classroom to landing 40,000 kilograms of cargo on Mars. Jessica also sponsors a variety of extracurricular activities and serves on numerous school, district, and state level committees. She was the 2015 Recipient of the Presidential Award for Excellence in Math and Science Teaching for secondary science and was a member of the 2021 Fulbright Teachers for Global Classrooms Program.
