Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Jessica Tollison. I have been a teacher at Moody Elementary for seventeen years. I have taught first grade for eleven years, intervention teacher for five years and am starting my first year as the reading coach. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Jacksonville State University in April 2004. I earned my Master’s Degree in Elementary Education from the University of Alabama in August 2007.
I grew up in Gadsden, Alabama and moved to Moody when I began teaching in 2004. I have been married for twelve years to a wonderful man, Brad Tollison. He is the Outreach and Missions Pastor at Lakeside Baptist Church. We have three precious boys; Luke (9 years) Lane (6 years) Layton (2 years old).
I feel like teaching young children is a calling and I am so glad God chose me to work/teach elementary students. In my classroom there is a lot of movement, personality, and learning taking place every day. I am very excited about being the Reading Coach at MES and being able to work with so many students and teachers.
