Miss. Whorton's Class

Hello Families,


My name is Jessica Whorton and I will be entering the 2020-2021 school year as a first year second grade teacher. I’d like to point out first and foremost that I am really excited to begin my journey with Tindley Genesis!


A little bit about myself, I graduated from IUPUI with a degree in Civic Leadership. I had a plan to create and lead a not for profit organization that centered around after school programs. Luckily, instead I found myself at Lew Wallace Elementary where I had the opportunity to work in their reading room as a paraprofessional. While there I was able to learn techniques that taught children how to develop proper reading and comprehension skills for four years. I will honestly always cherish my time at Lew Wallace, but I believe my purpose is to be a classroom teacher and my desire for this school year is to create a welcoming learning environment that enables students to find the joy in learning! 


In order to fulfill this desire I am going to need the help of my parents and team as we navigate this online journey to deliver thorough instruction that will help elevate their already curious minds. 


With all that being said, I hope you all will welcome me as I prepare to embrace this journey!


Let’s learn and grow together



Miss. Whorton
