Mrs. Andrea Jessup

Hello and welcome to 2nd grade! I'm Mrs. Jessup and I jumped from Kindergarten to 2nd grade this year and couldn't be more excited! I've been an Arroyo Verde Elementary Teacher since 2016, but I'm also an alumni of Arroyo Verde, being a student of the first graduating 6th-grade class! Go Aztecs! I have been a member of the East Highland/Redlands community for the majority of my life. I graduated with my BA in Creative Writing: Non-Fiction from the University of Redlands, and earned my Teaching Credential and a Masters in Learning and Teaching from the University of Redlands. I love having fun while learning and helping students develop a love of school and learning. I love Harry Potter, Disneyland and everything to do with my sweet. wonderful family!

Our class college is the University of Southern California, go Trojans!, our class colors are red and gold/yellow! You may click on the USC Bookstore link to purchase a college t-shirt or check out local stores. Our school spirit days are every Monday, students are encouraged to wear Arroyo Verde attire or colors (teal and black). College Days are every Friday, students are encouraged to wear USC attire or colors.

I highly encourage you to join our classroom Remind page. You can download the free app to your smartphone or join online. You can also call me before or after school. Feel free to email me at Our weekly classroom newsletter will come from the email.
