My name is Jessica McElyea and this will be my first year teaching at EverGreen Academy. I am very excited for my new position as the Reading and Math Specialist; it has always been my goal to have this type of position. I truly enjoy this type of work. I have a bachelors degree in elementary education from Northern Illinois University and teaching licenses in both Illinois and Wisconsin. For the past four years I have worked in primary level multi-age classrooms.
I live with my husband, Jon, and our two dogs named Reis and Joey. Some of our favorite things to do are camping and hiking. Most recently we took a trip to Colorado! We also enjoy training our dogs for search and rescue and obedience. In addition, I have been a ballet dancer since I was three years old and continue to take classes as an adult.
I am looking forward to my new adventure this year!
