Ms. Jessica Bridge joins our middle school team as our English Language Arts teacher. After receiving her degree from Temple University, Ms. Bridge taught high school English Language Arts at a girls’ high school in an immigrant community in Chicago. During this experience, she recognized the need for teachers of English as a second language and went on to obtain her MA TESOL from San Francisco State University, after which she taught college-level reading and writing courses to international university students as well as introductory English courses to adult immigrants. Most recently, she taught middle and high school English and served as the Service Learning Coordinator in the International Baccalaureate program at the Rabat American School in Rabat, Morocco. 
She moved back to Philadelphia with her husband and two young girls to be closer to her family, which is her primary passion in life. Otherwise she enjoys baking, running and reading non-fiction about women's lives.
