     Welcome!  My name is Jess Hans and I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
    At Reiffton:
    I am excited to be on Team D as a Science and Communication Arts Teacher.  I began at Reiffton in 2015 after having previously taught 6-8th grade for 3 years at a private school.  Sixth grade is my favorite!
    Educational Background:
    I graduated from West Chester University, with my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education.  At WCU I earned the following certifications: Elementary (K-6), Middle School Science (7-9), MS English (7-9), MS Math (7-9), and MS Social Studies (7-9).  I have also been trained and certified in the Wilson Reading System.  Most recently, I just finished up at Cabrini College, earning my Special Education certification (K-8) along with my Master's Degree in Special Education. 
    I grew up somewhat close to Exeter, in Elverson.  In 2014 I moved to Douglassville/Birdsboro, and have been loving getting to know the area!  I'm pretty much obsessed with my 2 cats, who think they are still baby kittens/dogs.  They're almost 5-year old brothers, who are able to be adorable and naughty at the same time.  When they were 2 months old, they took down our Christmas tree - I'm hoping there is not a repeat of that this year!

    It is my goal that homework, assignments, announcements, and other important information will be updated daily on Schoology.  Please make sure you are checking-in with your student to view their Schoology courses.
    Contact Information:
    Please - contact me with any questions or concerns!  Email is the best way of contacting me during the school day.  I have a 24-hour email response policy, with the exception of weekends, which is up to 48 hours.  I check email at home, and will respond to any email a student will send me, but I try not to spend too much time on email at home.  Classroom phones do not ring before 3:15, so if it is something extremely urgent, please contact the front office.
