Teacher Spotlight: Mrs. Jessica Miyashiro

March 19, 2023
By St. Serra Marketing Communications

This week, we are getting to know Mrs. Jessica Miyashiro, Preschool Teacher at St. Serra, and known to her students as “Miss Jessica.” Miss Jessica was a parent volunteer at St. Serra initially, and eventually joined our staff as an assistant in Transitional Kindergarten in 2017. Now working in our Preschool, Miss Jessica finds that she truly enjoys working with small children. “I enjoy the innocence in Preschool,” she shares. “I get to create an entertaining, engaging and creative classroom. My goal is to promote learning as well as social, cognitive and emotional development. Each day brings unexpected learning experiences as the children engage with each other.” One of the many things Miss Jessica’s class focuses on is growing closer to God everyday. For Lent they have planted gardens to grow alongside the students, and they are anticipating blooms by Easter.

Miss Jessica attended Azusa Pacific University, majoring in Human Development and minoring in English. She graduated from the school’s integrated Bachelors and teaching credential program in 2003. In addition to working at St. Serra, she has been the Early Childhood Coordinator at San Francisco Solano Catholic Church for the past five years. Her role at Solano involves welcoming young families to become involved in their faith. Prior to working at St. Serra, Miss Jessica enjoyed teaching kindergarten and fifth grade in the Diocese of San Bernardino, and third grade in the Diocese of Los Angeles. Her involvement in her parish and in being a teacher at Catholic schools has proven to be a vocation and a calling for Miss Jessica, as she loves sharing her faith with others.

Miss Jessica is married to Mr. Miyashiro, one of our very own second grade teachers at St. Serra. They have been married for fourteen years. They have two daughters who are students at St. Serra as well. Their oldest daughter, Jamie, will graduate from eighth grade at the end of this school year. Their youngest, Jenna, is currently in sixth grade. Spending time at St. Serra is definitely a family affair! “We are so proud of our Serra Bears,” says Miss Jessica. “[We] know that St. Serra has prepared them for their [future] educational and spiritual journeys.”
