My name is Jessica Tucker and I am honored to introduce myself as one of the 7A teachers. This will be my first year at Palos South Middle School. I will be teaching one section of 7th Grade Math Honors, three sections of 7th Grade Math, and one section of Social Studies. In addition, I will be helping with the Capstone program.
Previous to this year, I completed both a third and a fifth grade maternity leave in Manhattan. I graduated from Illinois State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education; as well as, Middle School endorsements in Mathematics, Social Studies, Science and Language Arts. In the spring, I coach JV softball at Lincoln-Way East High School and in the summers I work as a camp counselor.
Teaching has always been a passion of mine and I am excited to get started. I will be available before and after school if any student needs individual help. Please feel free to contact me via email or phone. I look forward to meeting and working with you all!
