Mrs. Jessica McElyea
My name is Jessica McElyea and this will be my fifth year working at EverGreen Academy. I am excited to continue as the Reading Specialist and to support those students who may need a little extra help. I have a passion for helping students learn new reading strategies and to see information “click.” I have a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Northern Illinois University and a teaching license Wisconsin. I am currently obtaining my Master’s of Education in literacy. Previous to working at EverGreen, I taught for four years in multi-age classrooms in the K-2 grade range.
I live with my husband, Jon, our son, Colton, and our two dogs named Joey and Reis. Reis will sometimes come to school to read with the kids! Some of our favorite things to do together are camping and hiking. I also enjoy ballet and photography. I look forward to another year as an EverGreen Eagle!
