Spirit of the Mustang - November

Mrs. Jessica Low is the type of teacher I aspire to be. Her quick wit and keen intellect provide the icing on the cake of a classroom experience that is the grounded in the curriculum and best-practices of her subject. She patiently collaborates and assists her team each year, puts in countless hours of research and lesson planning, and is a fierce advocate for teachers and public education. From “Dr. Who-ifying” her writing units to dealing with some of our most difficult students, she is both creative and professional.

On top of all that, Jessica is the master chef of yearbook—award-winning but constantly improving—a devoted and honest friend, and lovable nerd. I don’t hesitate nor feel it hyperbolic to say that Jessica Low is one of the finest teachers I’ve ever worked with and one that MJHS is blessed to have.
