Hi, my name is Jessica Van Tighem. I am originally from Great Falls, MT. I taught fourth grade at Woodrow Wilson for thirteen years but am moving on to a new challenge at G. W. Carver Elementary. I did my student teaching in New Zealand and also completed an internship at Walt Disney World, FL. I am a proud season ticket holder for the Charlotte Hornets. I currently reside in Concord.
