Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Jessica Orrett, and I will be teaching Second Grade this year! I am extremely excited to be back at BMES!
I was born and raised in Toronto, Canada, but moved to Arizona to attend ASU's Mary Lou Fulton Teacher's College (Go Devils!). I student taught in a 2nd Grade classroom at Horseshoe Trails elementary last year, so I am no stranger to the area. Prior to joining the BMES team, I worked as a K-3 Instructional Aide in Scottsdale. I also worked with K-3 students with America Reads, and interned in 3rd and 5th grade classes.
When I'm not in the classroom, you can find me baking with my mom, hanging out with my little sister and twin sister, or spending loads of time with my dog, Chewbacca.
I believe that in the classroom, I am not only creating good students, but developing young minds so that they may become compassionate, resilient, curious, and open-minded individuals. My greatest joy is sharing my passion for learning with children. I cannot wait to help your children reach their potential!
