Jessica Van Gilder

van gilderHobbs schools is proud to introduce its new teachers to our community. Look for a profile on a new instructor here on a regular basis.


I am Jessica Van Gilder and I teach fourth and fifth grade at Will Rogers Elementary School.


I grew up in North Carolina and Dallas. I graduated from Richardson High School and graduated from Texas Tech University.



The reason I want to teach is because I want students to feel loved, honored and safe when they come into my classroom. I want them to be confident in their abilities whether they are the smartest student in the class or not.


My favorite memory from my own days in school is when my teachers would let me be a "teacher" and help other students. I liked being the teacher’s pet.


In my spare time I like to exercise and hang out with my family.


My favorite book is anything that Nicolas Sparks writes..
