Hello! My name is Jessica Hegg and I am a Dual Language teacher starting my eighth year here at Banting! I am originally from Milwaukee, but I have lived in many places. I studied at the University of Minnesota where I got a Bachelor of Liberal Arts degree. During my time in Minnesota I also studied abroad for a semester in Spain. In 2001 I moved to Chile where I taught at an elementary school for seven years. I met my husband José in Chile and we were married there in 2005. In 2008 we moved to Milwaukee and I went back to school at Cardinal Stritch University for my teaching license in Elementary Education and Spanish. In 2015, I completed my Bilingual license at MTEC and in may of 2016 I received my Masters in Education. I have two wonderful children! Lucas is ten and Sofía is eight. We speak Spanish in our home, so my children are also bilingual! I love to cook and dance with my kids. We go camping every summer to the Wisconsin State Parks. I am very excited to start this new school year!!
What kind of learner are you?
