Jessica Gillcrist

My name is Jessica Gillcrist and I will be your new 1st Grade teacher!  This is my 15th year teaching. 
I've taught many years in 2nd grade and spent some time in 4th and as a Resource teacher.  I
earned my BS in Early Childhood and Elementary Education at the University of Central Missouri and
am looking forward to finishing my Master's soon!  I have had some awesome training opportunities
of learning lots of reading programs like Reading Recovery and Wilson.  It's really fun learning new
strategies to help our kiddos learn to read and learn to love to read!

During my free time, I'm always with my family!  My husband, Patrick, is an Olathe firefighter.  I have
a daughter, Lilly and a son, Brian.  We love watching movies, traveling, playing board games, and
hanging out at home!  You might see us around Spring Hill walking our Great Dane, Goofy!  We 
love being a part of this community and are excited to be a part of a wonderful community.

Please don't hesitate to email me or call me for anything!  We are going to have a great school year!
