Mrs. Jessica McDowell
Hello Hawk Nation!
My name is Jessica McDowell, and I teach 7th Grade Texas History. This will be my second year to teach students about the greatest state in our nation! I am excited to be a part of the Hawk family! Previously, I taught at Ferris Junior High in Ferris, TX.
I graduated Cum Laude from Texas A&M University- Texarkana with a Bachelor of Applied Arts & Sciences with a concentration in History. I was incredibly fortunate during college to be selected as a summer intern with the United States House of Representatives. I proudly interned for the late Congressman Ralph Hall in Washington, D.C. It was a priceless experience! I will share numerous stories about the inner workings of Congress with the students throughout the year.
My husband (Philip), my son (Carter), and I recently moved to the area and LOVE being here! Carter is 11 years old and is a 6th grader at Hays. We are huge sports fans (Go Rangers & Cowboys)!!! We attend as many games as possible throughout the year. Baseball is life in our house!
I am looking forward to the great things we will accomplish together in the classroom this year at Hays! Please feel free reach out to me with any questions you may have.
