Jessie Webb is a current senior studying Elementary Education with an
emphasis in English. She is currently engaging in her field placement
as a student teacher this academic year in a fourth grade classroom.
She is an ambitious individual who is looking forward to engaging in
graduate school next fall. Her future studies will include programs
that are on teaching and curriculum, with a focus on social justice
and equity matters.
As a current Trio member and first generation college student, Jessie
takes great pride in her ability to be resilient. After having two
children, while still in school, she finds it extremely important to
be a strong role model for her children, and help advocate for those
who need it. When Jessie is on campus she is always looking for
opportunities to engage in research on matters surrounding equity in
our educational system. Besides her school engagements, Jessie is also
a volunteer coach for i9's 5th grade Basketball and her daughter
T-ball team. Family is something that inspires her to be her best
self, and she hopes to help inspire others one day as well.
