Jessica R.

Lead Teacher & Stand in Director

Who is someone you admire, and why?
I admire those I surround myself with. They are all an amazing hard working bunch of individuals who help me see and leap towards my goals. They also remind me that we are all human with trials to overcome.

Three of your biggest pet peeves?
I have always thought of myself as a quiet and patient person. I cannot relate to others who go 0-100 blowing up at what I try really hard to ignore. Also, probably the typical high-pitched peeves, ie: scratching on a chalkboard.

What’s a typical day like for you?
My typical day is an early to rise type of start. I work, go home, clean, cook, and prep for the next day all while watching my own children and sometimes more. After bedtime I try to do something for myself. If I can stay awake, that is. 😂

If you could be anywhere other than here, right this minute, where would you be?
Camping in the woods on a river.

Flashback to when you were 10 years old. What do you want to be when you grow up?
When I was 10, I aspired to be a nurse.

I have a mommy sense of home, calmness, patience, and organization.

What do you want to make sure you do before you die?
Raise my two wonderful children to be kind, patient, hard working individuals. Also travel, a lot.

What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working?
Either relaxing and doing nothing, or outside on an adventure. My own type of 0-100.

What are some causes you care about?
All for one and one for all. Can’t we all just get along?

All the fun stuff. Usually board games.
