Jessica is a teacher/mentor in the areas of English, History, and Math. She earned her B.A. in Literary Studies from the University of Texas at Dallas and her M. Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction with a focus on Adolescent Literacy from Concordia University in November 2016.
Before coming to Fusion, Jessica taught 8th grade English in Dallas ISD and served as department head for four years. She also spent her first year out of college teaching ESL in South Korea. Jessica has worked in Education in various capacities since 2007, but knew that she would be a teacher by the time she was in 3rd grade.
When Jessica is not working, she enjoys traveling, writing and playing tabletop roleplaying games. She is (still) working on her first fantasy novel, which has been a work-in-progress since high school. Her favorite tabletop game system is Pathfinder RPG and she helps out on a youtube channel that teaches new players the game every weekend.
