I’m Jessica Stephenson, the fifth-grade teacher. I’ve been teaching in Catholic education for over twenty years. Most of those years have been spent teaching in the LA Archdiocese at the school my two daughters attended. I received my California Teaching Credential and Masters of Education from Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles. I recently relocated to Northern California to be closer to family. This is my first year teaching at St. Mel School and it already feels like home. I enjoy singing and on weekends I serve as a choir member and cantor at Mass. I feel blessed and happy to be a part of the St. Mel family.
