Ms. Jessica Szot
Hello and welcome! I'm Jessica Szot and I LOVE teaching math!
I have 3 daughters, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a husband, so I'm used to being busy and active.
My mother, who was an elementary teacher, tells me that when I was little, I would line up my stuffed animals and teach them, so I guess I was always going to wind up as a teacher. I was initially an elementary education major in college, but decided that I really wanted to teach math to older children, so I switched to math education and never looked back. I love the art, beauty, and logic of math. I love feeling like I've solved a puzzle, and I hope to pass that passion on to my students. I also enjoy learning about history, especially historical fashion, and theatre.
In addition to teaching math, I also co-sponsor the CCHS Theatre Club.
I'm from Yazoo City, but I grew up moving around (military family). I moved to Cleveland for Delta State, grew to love the town, and decided to stick around. I did my student teaching at East Side, I taught at Cleveland High, and now I'm thrilled to be a part of Cleveland Central High School!
