Hello! My name is Jessica Mainhart
. I have been a teacher with LCPS since 2001, and became a SEARCH teacher in 2006. Prior to becoming a SEARCH teacher, I taught second grade at Leesburg Elementary. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Psychology and Early Childhood Education from James Madison University. I also earned a Master's degree in Reading Education from the University of Virginia and am a certified reading specialist. Additionally, I have completed the endorsement program in gifted education from UVA.
When I am not teaching or traveling, I enjoy both indoor and outdoor gardening, scrapbooking, and reading. I also enjoy spending time with my daughter.
This year, I plan to provide challenges for the students at Rosa Lee Carter Elementary that will help extend their thinking and metacognitive skills. I am looking forward to working with the students at Rosa Lee Carter Elementary and making this year a memorable one for your child.
