Mrs. Jessica Spiel
Hello! My name is Jessica Spiel, and this is my first year as the ESL (English Second Language) Specialist at McCall Elementary. This is my 9th year at McCall, and it has truly been a dream come true to be a part of the McCall family all these years. My husband, Strat, and I have been married for 25 years and have 3 beautiful daughters. My husband teaches 8th grade U.S. History, and my oldest daughter has followed in our footsteps, becoming a Kindergarten teacher at McCall this year! We have lived in Plano for 21 years, and our children have attended Plano ISD schools. I graduated from the University of Denver with a Bachelor’s in Business Management and a minor in Child Psychology. I have taught Religious Education at my church for 15 years, and I was a Girl Scout troop leader for 12 years. I was a full-time substitute for Plano ISD for 4 years and had several long-term jobs teaching K-5th, PE/Fitness, and Special Education. I quickly figured out that “there is truly no place like McCall!” That's when I became a certified teacher to fulfill my passion for working with children. I taught 3rd Grade for four years, and now I am thrilled to be on the awesome Specialists Team. I am excited about exploring many wonderful learning opportunities with my ESL students! I have always enjoyed learning about new cultures and celebrating diversity in my classroom. I love when my students share stories, traditions, knowledge, and language from their own culture. My top priority is to help all students feel welcome at McCall Elementary. My most important goal in my classroom is to create a family of learners who show kindness and respect for one another. We will celebrate our achievements and struggles, support and encourage each other, and always keep trying, so that we may reach our full potential. I can't wait to start this year with your child. This is where my heart is!
