Welcome! My name is Jess Hans and I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
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!
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.
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.
