Meet Your Teacher
Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jessica Flaherty
Hello! My name is Mrs. Jessica Flaherty. I am originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and like many other teachers in this area, came to the south to teach! My husband teaches 7th grade Civics at Dixon-Smith Middle here in Stafford County and we've been pleased to call Fredericksburg our home for the past 13 years.
My teaching background consists of 12 years of 5th grade instruction and 1 year of 4th grade, so this will be my second year teaching 4th grade and I couldn't be more excited!
I have a two-and-a-half year old daughter, Reagan, and my husband and I are expecting our second child (a son...YAY!) this November! When I'm not at Hartwood, I'm probably at Wal-Mart (home away from home) or actually at home enjoying family time and watching Reagan grow up way too fast. I love music and cooking and someday I will own my own bakery, but for now, teaching gives me all the thrills I need!
I'm looking forward to a wonderful year ahead and please feel free to contact me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org.
