Mrs. Jessica Eckard
My name is Jessica Eckard. I am an Alexander County native! I graduated from UNCG in 2003 with a BA in English and a BS in Elementary Education. In 2005 I earned my MA degree from Appalachian State University in Reading Education. In 2010, after going through the National Board Process, I earned my National Board Certification. I have taught kindergarten, first grade, and fifth grade all at Ellendale. I live in Alexander County with my husband Jeff, daughter Adisyn, and son Trenton. I am very active in my church, Mt. Hebron Baptist in Taylorsville. I understand that your child comes with unique experiences, interests, and learning styles. My goal is to truly know your child and use this knowledge to guide, support, and motivate him/her. I believe good teaching requires continual professional development, personal reflection, and collaboration. I value your involvement and encourage you to partner with me to give your child a powerful and joyous learning experience!
