Jessica Depew

Welcome to 1st grade at Challenger Elementary! My name is Mrs. Jessica Depew, and this will be my 12th year as a Challenger Eagle. I am married to my high school sweetheart and have an almost 9 year old daughter. We also have a 6 month old Border Collie puppy named Sunshine. In my free time I enjoy reading, spending time outdoors, and hand lettering/doodling. I started my teaching career as a 6th grade special education teacher at Challenger Middle. In 2013 I decided to make a switch to elementary school and was able to transfer to CES as the 3-5 collaborative special education teacher. Then, in the 2015-2016 school year I transitioned to regular education teaching 1st grade. My diverse educational experiences have provided me opportunities to work with students at a variety of ages and developmental stages. I feel this is a great strength in teaching 1st grade. The academic, social, and emotional growth throughout 1st grade is unmatched by any grade I have taught thus far. That makes 1st grade one of my favorites! I'm looking forward to a terrific 2016-2017 school year!
