Pre-K & Kindergarten
Jessica joined Homestead School as a parent in 2018 and as a staff member in 2020. She received her Bachelor of Science degree from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry in Environmental Biology with a focus in Botany. She also has a Master of Science degree from the same university in Mycology and Forest Pathology. She spent time traveling to Costa Rica, Africa and throughout New York State studying beetles and fugus during her undergraduate and graduate years, and spent 5 years living in the northern woods of the Adirondacks and Vermont continuing to learn from the natural world. I have spent the next six years staying at home taking care of my children, which is one of her favorite experiences thus far. Jessica enjoys walking in the woods, trail running, knitting, reading and spending time with her family.
I am very excited to have the opportunity to work at the Homestead and continue my own education through the students and wonderful teachers and staff.
