Ms. Jessica Van Tighem


Hello everyone!  My name is Jessica Van Tighem and I am excited to be starting a new learning adventure with my second class at Patriots Elementary School!  Previously, I taught for sixteen years in Kannapolis City Schools, all in the fourth grade.  I am originally from Great Falls, MT. In my spare time, I love watching and attending Charlotte Hornets games.  I also enjoy traveling, photography, collecting Disney pins, and spending time with my family and friends.  I am looking forward to all the wonderful learning opportunities we will have this year!
