Welcome to another school year!
I am Jessica Els and the 2016-2017 school year will be my seventh year in teaching. This will be my first year at Williams and I cannot wait to see all of the wonderful and exciting things that this school and community have to offer. I have recently moved to Magnolia from Houston where I attended Cy-Fair High School, and taught 2nd grade math and science at Wilson Elementary.
I went to college at the University of Texas at San Antonio on a full athletic scholarship for softball. During my time at UTSA our amazing team won three Southland Conference Championships, four national home run titles, and I personally was named female athlete of the year and Southland Conference tournament MVP. Having the opportunity to play softball at the collegiate level has had a huge impact on my personal teaching philosophy. I firmly believe that hard work, healthy competition, and positive attitudes can help all learners reach their full potential. My goal is to give my students the tools they need to become successful lifelong learners.
