My name is Jessica Walchli, pronounced like broccoli. I am originally from California, but have also lived in Tennessee and Virginia. My family and I moved to Arizona in 2018. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Learning and Behavior in 1995, and my elementary and special education teaching certifications in 2010. I began teaching in Davis, California where I had been a para-pro for seven years. I taught Resource and Inclusion students for six years there before moving to Arizona. This past school year I was a substitute for the Cave Creek Unified School District.
My husband, Todd, and I have three children that have recently graduated from college and made their way to Arizona also. In my spare time I enjoy making paper crafts, such as greeting cards, and spending time with my family and friends.
I am looking forward to a great year encouraging my students in their growth, partnering with parents, and continuing my own development as a teacher!
