Hi! My name is Jessica Laurence, and I am thrilled to be starting my 4th of year teaching 2nd grade at Hart! I previously taught 3rd grade in Plano ISD before staying home to raise my three children. I consider the opportunity to teach 2nd grade here a blessing and an honor, and I can't wait to begin this new year!
While being a stay-at-home mom, I taught at my kids' preschool and volunteered at their elementary. Most recently I started a small jewelry-making and home decor business which I still enjoy doing on the side. I also enjoy singing. It's been a while, but I was a member of the worship team at my previous church and am hoping to get started again at my new church soon.
I have three children, Riley - 17, Colton - 15, and Olivia - 11. Riley is a senior at Lovejoy High School where he is a writer for the newspaper staff, The Red Ledger. He is our brainiac and musician playing piano, guitar, and singing all while carrying the workload of the G/T program at Lovejoy. He will attending the University of Oklahoma in the fall of 2016. Colton is in 9th grade at Lovejoy and plays football and baseball. He plays middle infield, left and center field, pitches and plays cornerback. He can tell you almost anything about any MLB player (especially shortstops) and his goal in life is to be in the MLB. Olivia will be in 6th grade at Sloan Creek. She loves making make-up videos and using her creativity to make things for her room and make videos for her YouTube channel. She loves to sing and in involved in the choir program at Sloan Creek. She is the perfect combination of girly-girl and tomboy.
I look forward to getting to know my new class and to a fantastic year!
