Jessica Profile Pic Sprout Academy Port Charlotte Mrs. Jessica is our co-lead VPK Bumblebee 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 met her Spouse, and they moved to Port Charlotte.  They are registered foster parents and have recently adopted their handsome 3 year old!  Jessica very quickly learned that teaching is where her heart is when she attempted to teach elsewhere.  She found Bloom and has loved working for Bloom and now Sprout since 2017.   She has been a lead teacher in 2 and 3 year old rooms, but is currently loving the school year in the VPK classroom.  In her spare time she enjoys spending time with her other half!   They consider themself blessed to be able to take in little ones in need via the foster care system, and to have adopted their first son Agosto Babcock.  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.
