Hi! My name is Jessica Heath, and I am a resource and inclusion teacher for 7th graders. This is my sixth year as a special education teacher, and I am beyond excited to be a part of your child's middle school journey. I attended Old Town as a student during the school's first two years of existence, and I graduated from Madison Central High School. I have a bachelor's degree from Mississippi State University, and I have been married for thirteen years. My husband and I have three children. Our boys are ten and six, and our daughter is two. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, traveling, sewing, and cheering for the Mississippi State Bulldogs. I also love to watch my sons play soccer and baseball. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child. If you ever have a question or concern, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Students in my classes are required to bring a library book with them to each class as we will often have silent reading time...READERS ARE LEADERS! Also, see the Useful Links tab to the left for sites I would like for students to utilize when they find themselves caught up with their work.
In my classroom I stress the importance of hard work and have asked your students to help me help them. Please understand that not all homework requires written responses....they can ALWAYS review. I have high expectations, and I want nothing less than the best from your child. I will do my best for them and for you!
PARENTS: You are strongly encouraged to follow your students on Active Parent as well as observe their CANVAS accounts. Please reach out if you need help with this.
Earn and give respect.
