Hi! My name is Jessica Colker and I am very excited to be your child's third grade teacher this year! I am looking forward to getting to know you and your students.

My Education and Professional Background

I was born and raised in San Diego, CA. I attended the University of Arizona where I received my BA in Political Science and a minor in Business in 2009. Once I completed my undergraduate degree, I returned to San Diego. In San Diego, I attended California State University at San Marcos and earned my teaching certification in elementary education in 2012. I am beginning my 5th year in education and could not imagine doing anything else

My Educational Philosophy

I believe it is my job as an educator to create a safe learning environment where all students feel valued and respected. I believe that it is my job as your child's teacher to instill a love for lifelong learning. I believe in positive encouragement and reinforcement to achieve desired behaviors from children. I believe that I am one part of a team and will do everything I can to ensure all students are successful.
