Degrees and Certifications:
Bachelor's in Elementary Education from MSU
Hello! My name is Jessica Carrasco. This is my first year teaching. I teach 8th Grade Special Education Pre-Algebra. My love of math developed when my dad became a Math teacher. I am a Waynesville graduate and received my Bachelor’s in Elementary Education from Missouri State University in 2010.
I started my career in the Waynesville District as a sub and later transitioned to AmeriCorps. I tutored students in small groups and aided in Club Tiger after school at the middle school. That’s where I realized the impact I could have in teaching, specifically Special Education Math. I later transitioned to a Paraprofessional for 8th Grade Science before becoming certified in Special Education. I will be co-teaching with Mrs. Haley this year.
I love spending time with my daughter, nephews, and dogs and enjoy being outside, even when it’s raining. I also enjoy doing crafty things and improving on my photography skills.
