Mrs. Jessica Costa
I moved to North Carolina recently with my husband from the great, but very cold, state of Wisconsin. We have a daughter who lives in Wisconsin and works in the medical field, and a son who is a junior at DePaul University in Chicago. We have a sweet, frisbee-obsessed doodle, Chloe.
I did my undergraduate work in Spanish, Education and ESL at the University of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, and I continued my studies there to get my MS in Curriculum and Instruction. I have been fortunate to have the chance to study in Mexico, Chile, Ecuador and Costa Rica, so I love the chance to speak Spanish with students and families. My husband is from Brazil, so I have been able to learn some Portuguese, as well.
I have taught EL for more than 15 years. During that time, I have had the privilege of working with many different students at all different grade levels, from kindergarten through community college. I love working with EL students because I continue to learn through them every single day.
I am certified to teach yoga and group fitness, and enjoy different kinds of movement. I am happy to be here at Battleground Elementary!
