    Hi! My name is Jessica Tollison. This is my twenty-third year teaching  at Wren Middle School. I am originally from Missouri and graduated from Missouri State University with a B.S. in Elementary Education in 1999.  In 2004, I completed my Master's Degree in Technology in Education through Lesley University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.  Later that year, I achieved National Board Certification.  I feel teaching is my professional life's purpose and enjoy challenging my students!  I look forward to getting to know each group of students each year and enjoy learning new things from them!
     
    In addition to teaching, I sponsor the WMS Beta Club.  We lead several service projects for the school and community throughout the year.  We have also been extremely successful in competing at state and national conventions.  Beta Club is a worthwhile service and leadership organization.  I am excited to be able to teach a class that incorporates the wonderful activities Beta Club has to offer in addition to many other unique experiences.  We publish the news show each week and publish an amazing yearbook each year.  
     
    I have been married to a wonderful man, Brian Tollison, for twenty-four years and we have two awesome and funny sons, Bailey (22) and Jonah (19), and a beautiful daughter, Jenna-Kate (13).  Bailey is a graduate of Wren High School and of USC Upstate with a degree in Secondary Education History.  He will begin his first teaching job this year as a 7th grade geography teacher.  Jonah is a recent graduate of Wren High School and is a sophomore at Missouri State University majoring in cell and molecular biology.  Jenna-Kate is an eighth grader at Wren Middle School and is a competitive dancer at UCDC and a member of the Category V dance team at Wren High School. 
     
    In my spare time, I enjoy reading, sewing, crocheting, playing games, doing puzzles, traveling, watching college football, watching NBA Basketball (Go McGowens Bros), and spending time doing anything with my family and friends.
