Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jessica Carr
Welcome to 5th grade!
I am looking forward to spending my 11th 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. For the last three years, I have been 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 18 years. Our son will be a senior at Sandra Day O’Connor High School this fall.
A few of my favorite things…
In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family and dogs. We love traveling, watching football, and making memories.
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!
