Welcome to my portfolio...
My name is Jessica Francis and I am currently a first and second grade teacher. This is my portfolio to showcase the work I have done through the Master of Arts in Education program at Michigan State University. I hope you enjoy learning about my career and experiences over the past couple years!
"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires." -William Arthur Ward

“Ms. Francis’s high degree of success is due in part to her exceptional work ethic and attention to detail, but also to the depth of her thought and reflection on her professional practice within and outside of the classroom.”
