Hello! My name is Jessica Pease and I am excited to be working with your child this year! This is my sixth year teaching in Frederick County. I spent three years teaching fifth grade in Thurmont before coming to work closer to home at Ballenger Creek Elementary. I graduated from Mount Saint Mary's University in 2007 with a degree in Elementary Education and am currently working on my masters degree in Curriculum and Instruction at Hood College. In my spare time I enjoy running, reading, and traveling all over the country to watch my husband play professional baseball. Fifth grade is a very exciting year for your child as they will be preparing to enter middle school. I know that if we work together, we can make this a successful year for your child.
