Meet the Teacher


Hi! My Name is Mrs. Jessica Thorne and I am excited to be one of your teachers! Let me tell you about myself: I live in Fort Mitchell, AL with my husband and four children—Marcus (13), Jayla (10), Tori (7), and Arielle (16 months). I enjoy reading, traveling & being with friends and family. I will be teaching Reading/English Language Arts (ELA) and Social Studies this 2017-18 school year. Together, we will make this year exciting and productive. I can’t wait to begin working and getting to know each and every one of you. This will be my 1st year teaching at North Columbus Elementary School & I am excited to make this my best year yet!
