Welcome to Art Class!


I am Ms. Jessica, Cityview’s new art teacher!  I am very excited to be joining the Superstars this year.  I have been working in schools in some capacity for the last 13 years.  I began my teaching career in the art room and am thrilled to be returning this year. 

I am originally from Wisconsin.  I did my undergraduate work at the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire and my master’s work at Eastern Oregon University and St. Thomas.  I moved to Minnesota about 14 years ago and have never looked back.

I currently hold a K-12 Visual Arts license as well as a K-12 English Second Language license.  I stepped out of the classroom these past few years to work as a teacher coach for the district.  Although I loved being able to support all the teachers, I felt it was time to return to the classroom. 

When I am not at school, I live with my husband and my twin 4-year-old boys, Max and Ivan.  We live in Ramsey and enjoy being outside as much as possible. 

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions, concerns, or if you or a member of your family would like to volunteer or showcase your own artistic talents for the students.  I am always trying to bring our student’s community into the classroom. 

I look forward to a great year!!

Ms. Jessica
