Welcome! My name is Jessica Snyder and I am a fourth grade math teacher at Franklin Towne for the 20182019 school year. I graduated from Temple University where I studied elementary and special education. This year at Franklin Towne is my second year teaching, and I am extremely excited for the opportunity to work with your children. It is important to me that throughout this school year, I not only teach your children math, science, and social studies, but that I also make them better people than they were when they entered my classroom.
On this page I will post links to any videos or other resources that could be useful to you at home. Please feel free to come to this page and use those resources at any time.
