Subjects Taught
Intervention, Physical Education


Hello, my name is Jessica Biesanz and this is my fifth year teaching at GH. Gretchen Higgins was my first full-time teaching position so it holds a special place in my heart! The past four years I have been teaching a split position with PE and RTI. This year I am only teaching RTI, which consists of reading groups and ELD. I grew up in Sacramento in a house of teachers; both of my parents are teachers as well. I graduated from Del Campo High School and then continued my education at Chico State. I finished my undergrad and Multiple Subject Credential along with a Physical Education Supplement in 5 years. After Chico, I moved back to Sacramento and a few weeks later Brett Peterson (my good friend from Chico State) called me and told me about a job opening at GH. He convinced me to apply and it was the best decision I ever made!
