Hello. My name is Jessica Parsons (kids usually call me Ms. Jess). I am a graduate of the University of Northern Iowa and I am currently working on my master's degree through Iowa State University. This is my 12th year working in early childhood. I am an instructional coach and love working with preschool students and families. I hope you are eager for the wonderful experiences your child will have in preschool and for the growth you will see them make throughout the year. As an instructional coach I have the opportunity to visit many classrooms and meet many students and families. If you see me at your child's school please don't hesitate to say hello. I look forward to working with you this school year!
