Mrs. Jessica Shicora
I received my bachelor’s degree in mathematics at the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2008 then I went into the business world. I held the position of Office Manager / Sales Analyst for a local food brokerage. That experience allows me to discuss with the students about their life after high school and how important their diploma and extracurriculars is to the work force. Throughout the years I heard from many professionals that they hated math class once they learned that I had a degree in the subject. These conversations continually reminded me of my dream to teach in order to encourage people to enjoy math. After reflection and many family conversations I chose to leave the business world and earn my certification to teach at the high school level to follow my dream.
I am driven by a desire to educate youth. Hopeful that I can instill lasting critical thinking skills that can be used for their entire lives.
I am excited to be leading our amazing team of Algebra 1 teachers again this year. We will be working together to create a comprehensive curriculum to excel our students well past the state STAAR test and Algebra 1. We will be encouraging skills that will propel the students into the higher-level math classes.
