Jessica KauffmanK-12 EL Coach

I am honored to say that I have been a part of the Tapestry Community as a parent and teacher for the past 8 years.  During the last 3 years, I have served the community as the K-12 EL Education Coach. My journey of being a teacher began in Syracuse City School District where I was a founding teacher at ELMS, another EL Education School.  As a teacher and coach, I am passionate about finding ways that make learning “come alive” for students, while teaching to the whole child. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental and Forest Biology as well as a Master’s Degree from SUNY Empire State College with a Masters in Arts in Teaching.

Outside of Tapestry, you can find me in the farm “fields” of our urban farm, 5Loaves Farm, crafting, or escaping the city to hike, canoe, climb, swim, or bask in the wilder places.
