Ms. Jessica James

First Grade

I graduated from UW-Platteville in December 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education and minors in early childhood education and Spanish. I completed my student teaching at St. Joe’s and became a substitute teacher. I enjoy hanging out with friends and cheering on my nieces and nephews in their various activities.


Meet Ms. Amy Joestgen, 4th Grade

I grew up in Dodgeville, WI and attended St Joseph’s Catholic School for Kindergarten-8th grade. I graduated from UW-Whitewater in December of 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education (1-8). After graduation, I subbed a little here at St Joes and worked at a daycare in Mt Horeb. The summer of 2013, I took online courses from UW-Whitewater to receive an add-on license for early childhood education so I would be able to teach preschool in the fall. For two years I taught 4K in Mt Horeb. This is my first year here at St Joseph and this is my first year teaching 4th grade.
