Mrs. Jessica Roodvoets
Welcome! I am Mrs. Roodvoets, 7th Grade AVID and LA teacher. I have taught at La Cima for six years now, as well as being a product of the school itself and the Amphi district. I love reading, running, cooking, and my sweet little dogs.
Please feel free to explore my website and contact me with any questions you might have.
Defining Moment in Education
My favorite moments in education are when students learn to love reading, or achieve a goal they have set. So many times kids walk into my classroom talking about how much they hate reading, and by the end of the year, they are begging to read for the entire class period (that’s two full hours, people).
Core Educational Beliefs
I believe that education is the way to success. I believe education is a choice and a privilege. I believe that everyone can learn. I believe that education should affect who you are and what you do. I believe that every day a child learns and loves, the world gets a little better.
