Mrs. Jessica Judson
My name is Jessica Judson, and it is my absolute honor and blessing to be your Family Specialist here at Jackson-Keller Elementary! I have been a part of North East ISD since 2019.
Allow me to share a little about myself. I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California to immigrant parents from Mexico. As education was always valued in my household, I received my bachelor’s degree in International Security and Conflict Resolution from San Diego State University. My studies allowed me to travel the world and I was very fortunate to learn at the University of Barcelona in Spain as well as the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. My need to continue to learn and travel led me to an internship at the Center for Refugee Services in San Antonio, TX. I fell in love with the city, the culture, and a cowboy!
I believe every child deserves a high-quality education, and every family deserves the ability to support their child through their educational journey. I am here to provide transparency, resources, and a space for parents and the community to be able to positively affect their children as they continue to learn and grow.
I look forward to working with and getting to know each of you this school year.
