Mrs. Jess Landes
Hi, my name is Jess Landes and I am so excited to be teaching digital literacy to elementary students this year. I have been a proud Marion Unit 2 teacher for the past 18 years. I have taught kindergarten, first, second, and third grades. I was a third grade teacher for 10 years 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. This passion continues to grow as I am pursuing my Master's degree in Instructional Technology from Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville.
I am originally from Southeast Missouri and I graduated from Southwest Baptist University with a Bachelors of Science degree in Elementary Education. My husband Rob and I raised our children Abby, Libby, and Payton in Marion and they are all MHS graduates. 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.
