Ms. Jess

Hello! I’m Jess Olson (Ms. Jess to the kiddos) and I am the classroom teacher for the Bee Room! I am so excited to be partnering with you and your family this year. This is my sixth year of teaching and my fifth year at JMECC. I graduated from Elmhurst College in 2016 with a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education, and certifications in Early Childhood Special Education and English as a Second Language. I am currently working on my Master’s degree in Early Childhood Leadership and Advocacy at Erikson Institute. I LOVE to learn and I love being able to share this passion with my students and families every year. My favorite part of teaching is  building strong, supportive, lasting relationships with all of our students and families that set the foundation for a positive school career and a lifelong love of learning. We strive to create a classroom community that allows us to learn with and from each other and have tons of fun along the way! I am so looking forward to sharing this experience with you.
