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 17 years. I have taught kindergarten, first, second, and third grades. For the last ten years I taught 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. This passion continues to grow as I am pursuing my Master's degree in Instructional Technology from Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville. I will graduate in May.
My husband Rob and I raised our children Abby (25), Libby (24), and Payton (21) in Southern Illinois. 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.
