• *Meet Jess*
     Hello! My name is Jess Bruce and I am so excited to be teaching math at Delta Middle this year. This is my third year at Delta but my fourteenth year teaching. I was actually born and raised in State College so it has been really fun to come back here to teach. After growing up in State College, I went to college at Clarion University of PA. In 2009, I started teaching in Clearfield, PA and was there for seven years.
    I live in State College with my husband and our son Michael. My husband, Ryan, is an airline pilot so he travels a lot. Our son turned five this summer and we have been having so much fun watching him grow. I'm sure you will hear some funny stories about him this year. Other than spending time with my family I love to read, bake, do improv with Happy Valley Improv, sing a long with musicals, and enjoy all things Harry Potter. I can't wait to find out about all of your interests this school year!
    This is the three of us in Hilton Head, South Carolina last summer.
     Pictured below are some of the adventures we have been on. Other than traveling, I love to read, read, and read some more. Sometimes I have trouble going to the store and coming home without a new book. I cannot wait to meet you and learn all about your interests.
    Our family explored Savannah, Georgia this summer (2021) as well.
    This is a beautiful fountain in Forsyth Park.
    Michael met some cool bookstore cats in Savannah!
    Hamilton is currently one of my favorite musicals.
    Mr. Bruce and I saw it in Pittsburgh last year.
    Harry Potter is my favorite book and I loved
    going to The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!
    A few years ago, my husband and I hiked to a glacier in Colorado.
    It was so cold but worth it!
