About: Jessica Carter


My name is Jessica Carter and I am a senior at the University of North Texas. I will be graduating in May 2019 with a double major in English and Spanish with an All-Level Spanish Teaching Certificate. Currently I am observing High School Spanish classes and in the Spring I will be student teaching at a Junior High School teaching 7th and 8th grade Spanish 1!

In my free time I love to watch movies and read. My boyfriend and I have two cats named Charlie and Phoebe who we absolutely adore (see picture below). I will be traveling to Mexico, Belize, and Honduras next summer and have aspirations for more travel in the future.

I am very passionate about learning and teaching Spanish and am thrilled to be beginning my career as an educator. I hope that my journey will inspire others who have considered being a teacher, those at a crossroads in their own career, and those who have ever considered learning a new language. You can do this!
