Hello! My name is Jessica Wohlferd and I am teaching my sixth year of Second Grade Dual Language (Spanish) this year at Cannon! This is my twelfth year of teaching and my 15th year in education. I love working in GCISD and my heart will forever be in bilingual and dual language education.

I am a native Texan who grew up in the Fort Worth area. I served six years in the US Navy as a Sonar Technician and finished my Associates degree in Electronics Technology while I was enlisted. I attended college at The State University of New York at Albany and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Spanish Language and Education. I am currently working toward my Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction with STEM certification online through Texas A&M University and will graduate with a Masters in Education in May of 2020.

My husband Elliott and I met and married while on active duty in the US Navy. We have lived all over the United States and love to travel. We have two children - Nicholas is a freshman at the University of Houston and Aubree is a senior at Colleyville Heritage High School. We also have a sweet twelve-year-old Shih Tzu named Ziggy. We love to try new restaurants and cuisines and attend sporting events. We also spend quite a bit of time watching our kids play sports and participate in other extracurricular activities.
