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 are to the work force. Throughout the years, I heard from many professionals that they hated math class after 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 certificate to teach at the high school level and follow my dream.
I am driven by a desire to educate young people. I hope that I can instill lasting critical thinking skills that can be used for their entire lives.
I am now the Academic Trainer over Math. I am excited to assist our dream team of incredible math teachers. We will be working together to create a comprehensive curriculum to excel our students well past the state STAAR test, SAT, ACT or TSI. We will be encouraging skills that will propel the students into the higher-level math classes and prepare them for life after high school!
