About Jessica Colker...
Position: 5th Grade Math
Hello! I am Jessica Colker and this is my 11th year teaching in Arizona. I was born and raised in San Diego, California and made my way to Phoenix 10 years ago. I graduated from The University of Arizona with a Bachelors in Political Science and minor in business. I then went to California State University San Marcos and received my teaching credential. This will be my 11th year teaching and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else! I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade and have a passion for teaching Math and Science. I am excited to join the Auxier team this year and look forward to a great year!
