My name is Jessica Appler and I love being a kindergarten teacher! I have been teaching in Baltimore City Public Schools for 13 years. I started my career at Waverly Elementary and have been at Tunbridge since it opened 9 years ago. I have taught first, second, and third grade in previous years as well.
I graduated from Towson University in 2006 with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. In 2014, I graduated again from Towson University with my Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education. While at Towson as an undergrad, I played softball (Go Tigers!) and have been lucky to have the continued support of my team as they have volunteered their time in my classroom for many years!
I enjoy spending time with my husband and two boys - Chase (6 and a first grade student at Tunbridge) and Tanner (4 and a pre-k student at Tunbridge). We love to play outside, collect eggs from our 10 chickens, spend time at Bethany Beach and Deep Creek Lake, and hang out with our family and friends to watch the Ravens and Orioles! I also love to bake and decorate cakes and cupcakes :)
