Jessica Zentz-Ridenour


I am thrilled to begin my 3rd year at Lincoln Elementary School as the Teacher Specialist for Student Achievement and Data Analysis.  I look forward to working with the Lincoln community and teachers to make a difference in the lives of all students.  


Prior to coming to Lincoln Elementary I worked at Walkersville and Thurmont Elementary Schools.  I have taught students in second through fifth grades. Growing up in Frederick County, and now teaching here, has been a great opportunity.  I love working in the same county I grew up!


My husband, who once taught at Lincoln Elementary School also, is now the Assistant Principal at Hillcrest Elementary School.  I have a daughter, Adeline, who goes to school at Thurmont Elementary School and my son, Grayson, is in Kindergarten at Thurmont Primary School.  We busy our evenings with dance and baseball practice!  Adeline wants to grow up to be a dance teacher and grayson would like to be the "greatest ball player in the world!"


This will no doubt be an exciting school year!
