Jessica joined the Mathematics Department at SFCC in 2013. Jessica’s college journey began in Northern Michigan where she was a Running Start student. Grateful for the opportunity community college afforded her Jessica transferred to Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan where she completed her Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics with a minor in Chemistry.
In 2009 Jessica relocated to the eastern part of Washington where she pursued her passion for teaching mathematics. Jessica earned a Master of Initial Teaching Degree from Gonzaga University in 2010, followed by a Master of Science in Mathematics in 2013. A lifelong learner at her core, Jessica is also nearing completion of her Ph.D. in Math and Science Education at WSU.
Jessica’s passion for teaching mathematics has blossomed over the years as she has gained experience teaching high school, community college, and university students. Jessica has made it a priority to continue to engage herself in professional learning opportunities aimed at creating an equity-focused mathematics classroom environment. Jessica leverages innovative research-backed teaching techniques including inquiry-based learning, outcomes-based assessment, and writing-intensive curriculum development. One of Jessica’s greatest joys is working with aspiring teachers as they work to understand their craft and passion for improving the learning experience for students.
In her free time Jessica likes to adventure in the outdoors with her friends, family, and her two dogs. When she is not on campus you can find her hiking, running, rock or ice climbing, mountaineering, skiing, paddleboarding, swimming, or playing ice hockey.
Jessica looks forward to learning new things with you!
