Mrs. Jess Landes

Hi, my name is Jess Landes and I am so excited to be teaching digital literacy to elementary students at Lincoln and Longfellow schools again this year. I have been a proud Marion Unit 2 teacher for the past 20 years. I have taught kindergarten, first, second, and third grades. I spent most of my career teaching Lincoln third graders and this is where my passion for elementary technology ignited and grew. Technology in the classroom can be an amazing tool that creates strong student engagement as well as future readiness in our digital world. In 2020, I completed my Master's Degree in Instructional Technology from Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville.

My husband Rob and I raised our children Abby, Libby, and Payton in Marion. We are now empty nesters with a precious dog named Benny. I look forward to a year of new adventures teaching Digital Literacy to students at Lincoln and Longfellow schools.
