Jessica-2023 Ms. Jessica is our lead Firefly teacher.  She is originally from Belle Vernon ( a small town outside of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.)  In 2012, while living in PA, she graduated from California University of Pennsylvania with a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education.   Jessica moved to Sarasota, FL where she was a substitute teacher until she moved to Port Charlotte.  She is a registered foster parent and has recently adopted her second child!  Jessica very quickly learned that teaching is where her heart is, when she attempted to work elsewhere.  She found Bloom and has loved working for Bloom and now Sprout since 2017.   She has been a lead teacher in the VPK Classroom and 3-year-old classroom. However, she is excited to be back in the 2-year-old classroom (which is her favorite ;)).  In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her little guys who also attend Sprout! Jessica is also super close with her family in Pennsylvania, and she enjoys traveling up there and video chatting with them as much as possible.
