About Mrs. Jessica Pfau...
Position: Technology Teacher
Team/Department: Specials - Technology
With digital citizenship at the forefront of each lesson, students in kindergarten through sixth grade will increase their knowledge of computer science and real-world applications of technology.
Whether your child wants to become a teacher, an astronaut, a doctor or an entrepreneur; computer skills will play a large part of their future! I can't wait to get students excited about coding, robotics and 3D printing!
My Education and Professional Background
I graduated from High School in 2000 from Lake Washington High School in Bellevue, Washington. I have a Bachelor's of Arts in Education from Arizona State University. I was a student orientation leader, a resident assistant, a student-athlete, was the elected official for the College of Education for ASU's Student Government and graduated with honors in December 2004. I also volunteered as a diving coach for the Sun Devil Divers program.
In 2009, with one infant in tow, I walked in the commencement ceremony in Flagstaff, and graduated Magna Cum Laude with my Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University. Adam and I welcomed our second child to our lives soon after in 2010.
I have been teaching in the Chandler Unified School District since January of 2005. My positions to date include: third grade classic, third grade traditional, 4th grade traditional, Technology Integration Specialist at Basha Elementary and sixth grade traditional with an emphasis in social science content.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe in your child and high expectations. I believe in the power of yet. I believe in bad days and better tomorrows. I believe in hard questions and not always knowing the answers.
