Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Jessica Carr

Welcome to 5th grade! 

I am looking forward to spending my 14th year as an educator at Union Park School! 

My educational  journey… 

I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Northern Arizona University in 2010. I then went on to earn a Master's Degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Reading and Literacy from Walden University in 2013. I have previously taught first and third grade. Prior to joining the Union Park Family, I was an instructional coach for teachers in second through sixth grade, special areas, and gifted at another DVUSD school. Through this role, I was able to work closely with teachers and other education professionals to improve instruction and help students achieve mastery of the Arizona State Standards. 

A little about me… 

I was born in Lakewood, California, but moved to Arizona at the age of three. I absolutely love living in the Sonoran Desert!  I have been married to my husband Jason for 22 years. In 2021, our son graduated from Sandra Day O’Connor High School in the DVUSD district. 

A few of my favorite things… 

In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family. We love traveling, watching football, and making memories. 

My hopes… 

I am hopeful that together we can help your child make meaningful memories that will ignite their passion for learning. I truly believe that all students can learn and together we can ensure that they learn at high levels. 

I am thrilled to be your child's teacher this year!
