Teachers

Hello! My name is Jessica Naves. I am entering my 7th year as a teacher, all of which have been in 5th grade. I graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a B.S. degree Child and Adolescent Development, a M.S. degree in Education and earned my teaching credential. As a child, I knew my passion was to become an educator and give back to the community by helping to shape our young minds. I subscribe to a progressive teaching style, which encourages students to take ownership in the learning process as I facilitate to meet their learning needs. Each year, I continue my research to stay current on the most efficient teaching practices to help students achieve their learning goals. To me, learning is FUN, so I bring learning to life for students, making them more eager to reach their goals. I am excited for another wonderful year in the classroom!!!

Hi everyone! My name is Shauna Jackson. I have worked at SJE for 8 years in various roles and couldn't imagine being anywhere else! I earned my Bachelors of Science in Sociology from the University of California, Riverside and my Masters of Arts in Learning and Teaching from the University of Redlands. In my 6 years of teaching at San Jacinto Elementary, I have focused my work on building innovative lessons that are designed to empower students and get them excited about learning inside the classroom and beyond. I look forward to working with you and having an amazing year!!!

Hi everybody! My name is Mr. Zipper. This is my fourth year of teaching and my second year at San Jacinto Elementary School. I received my Bachelors of Arts Degree in Entrepreneurial Management from Cal State San Bernardino and worked at martial arts school for a few years. There, I discovered my passion for educating young minds so I went to Cal State Los Angeles and got my teaching credential. As a teacher, I believe that each student is unique and important. I focus on design lessons that make students aware of how they learn best and that provide them with the opportunity to choose how they receive and present ideas.
