Mrs. Jessica Tucker
Hi there! My name is Jessica, and I am looking forward to working with the Arrowhead community this year.
I was born and raised in Syracuse, New York. Unfortunately, I do not have the awesome New York accent people might expect! I did however, survive twenty two very cold winters, earned a Bachelors Degree in Education, and completed a Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. In 2011, I made a life changing decision to relocate to Arizona.
I have been a teacher in Arizona for eight years. I feel lucky to be serving a third year in the Deer Valley School District. Our district promotes values that drive me as an educator, and as a person; collaboration, and continuous improvement.
Last June, I graduated with a second Master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Grand Canyon University. I have learned that college rivalries are pretty serious in AZ so… Go Lopes!
Outside of my school life, I am married and have two children. My daughter Emery is almost 4, and my son Calvin just turned 2. When I get free time, it is dedicated to my family. I enjoy exercising, reading, watching a series here and there, and catching up with the people closest to me.
I can’t wait to meet all of Arrowhead Elementary’s students, teachers, and parents!
