Welcome to 5th Grade!

My name is Mrs. Jess Cheap, and I am thrilled to be your student’s 5th grade teacher! This is my 8th year teaching, and my first year at BEJ. I taught at Sylvan Elementary previously and at a school in Dunn. I am originally from Hickory, NC. I graduated from UNC Greensboro in 2010 with a degree in Elementary Education and received my Master’s degree in Elementary Education from Elon in August 2015.

I am excited to get to know your family as we work as a team to help your student be successful this year!
