Jessica Bennett has had a passion for education since she was seven years old. When her siblings would see her with papers and pencils, they immediately knew it was time to play pretend school.
This passion inspired her to earn a bachelor’s degree in Early and Middle Childhood Studies from The Ohio State University, a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Grand Canyon University, and a second master’s degree in Special Education.
Jessica is not only a passionate educator; she is also a dedicated wife and the mother of four energetic children.
When her twin son Jeremiah was diagnosed with autism, she knew her life's work had expanded. Jeremiah inspired her to begin writing and illustrating books and to launch Jeremiah's Corner. Jessica hopes that This Is Me will encourage children to be mindful and understanding of those who are different.
