Ms. Jessica Mathison comes to us with 10 years of experience; starting as a kindergarten teacher in Phoneix, AZ, she moved to Milwaukee where she has been teaching since. She earned her bachelor’s degree in elementary education with an emphasis on language arts from UW-Eau Claire in 2006, and looks forward to earning a master’s degree in the coming years.
Ms. Mathison began as a teacher knowing she wanted to dedicate her career to urban education. In Milwaukee, she was part of a start-up school on the north side, where she taught 1st grade. At St. Augustine Prep she will have the opportunity to be a part of building and choosing curriculum, creating school culture, mentoring student teachers from area universities, as well as coaching new teachers and excelling students- especially in the area of early literacy.
Ms. Mathison will be teaching kindergarten at Aug Prep. She is looking forward to meeting and developing relationships with her students and their families as they adventure through the school year. She is eager to share her faith with the students and watch them grow to know and understand the love of God as they study His creation in all areas of academics.
