Jessica Fox was born on the east coast and grew up in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Although she has experience teaching students in middle and high school, she has discovered her passion for teaching younger students. Jessica was a founding member of charter schools in Albuquerque, New Mexico and Lawrence, Massachusetts. When given the opportunity to be a founding teacher at New Los Angeles Elementary, Jessica jumped at the chance! She feels like she has found her home in the New LA community where she can continue to bring her passion for inquiry-based and action-oriented curriculum to the classroom. She is currently working toward her Master’s in Reading and Language at the University of Massachusetts. Jessica is excited to be living in Los Angeles where hiking, camping, and enjoying the outdoors are year-round activities.
