About Me...


My name is Jessica.  My family consists of my parents Neil and Jeanne and my brother, Derek, who is 24.  I was born in Niles, Michigan and have lived all but two years of my life in Three Oaks, Michigan.  I grew up in a very small town and knew nearly every person I graduated with at River Valley High School in 1999.  

I am currently attending Western Michigan University where I am a member of the College of Education.  I am working towards my Elementary Education degree.  It seems that as far back as I can remember I have wanted to be a teacher; from the days of playing school in the toy room to my cadet teaching my senior year in High School.  I am currently intern teaching at Chime Elementary School in Kalamazoo Public Schools.  I am very excited to finally be in the classroom and put to use everything I have learned. 

Dancing has always been an important part of my life.  I began dancing in the third grade taking tap and jazz lessons at the Sawyer Dance Academy.  In eighth grade I joined the Sawyer Dance Troupe, which is a competition group that travels to various competitions.  While I was a member of the troupe we attended two National Dance Competitions in which we did very well.  In eighth grade I also began assisting in several dance classes.  I no longer dance but am still a teacher at the Sawyer Dance Academy and have worked with children from three to seventy-three years of age. 













Websites that I visit often: America Online, Weather Channel, Michigan! Everything, and Hallmark among many others.
