My name is Jessica Patrick and I am thrilled to be a part of the Maroa-Forsyth family! I graduated from Millikin University with my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education after completing my student teaching right here at MFGS. Since then, I have taught Kindergarten, 3rd grade, and 5th grade. I completed my Master’s degree in Reading in 2017 at Illinois State University and I have a Reading Specialist certification. This will be my 8th year of teaching and I couldn’t be happier! When I'm not at school, I love spending time with my husband and my 4 year old daughter.
These are a few of my favorite things:
- Favorite book series: Harry Potter
- Favorite movie: The Princess Bride
- Favorite color: Rainbow!
- Favorite drink: Caramel iced coffee from Dunkin’ Donuts
- Favorite sports team: Chicago Cubs
- Favorite hobby: Reading
- Favorite food: Mexican food
