Degrees and Certifications:
Ms. Jessica Downing
My name is Jessica Downing. I’ve been teaching 5th grade at LPE for the last 2 years, but I have a total of 5 years teaching experience. I started teaching in Wake County in 2010 right after receiving my graduate degree from Meredith College. I’m a native North Carolinian and grew up in Wake Forest, where I attended Wake County Public Schools. After high school, I went to NC State (Go Pack), where I received my undergraduate degree in Communications with a concentration in Media. I worked at WRAL-TV and a public relations firm, but the classroom seemed to be calling me. I enjoy teaching and work to integrate technology and critical thinking into many of the activities I assign. Aside from being a teacher, I’m also a mom and a wife. I married my husband in August of 2011 in Wake Forest. Since then, our family has grown. We have a son named William (2), a daughter named Charlotte (1), and a third baby girl on the way in September. In addition to our children, we also have a dog named Miles and a cat named Otis. When I’m not at school, I love spending time with my family, cooking, reading, running, and cheering on the Wolfpack and the Panthers.
