Mrs. Jessica Bearden

Hi! My name is Jessica Bearden. I teach kindergarten at NSM. Even though I didn’t graduate from North Sand Mountain, I only have the heart of a bison now.

My husband Thomas and I live in Flat Rock with our two beautiful children, Branson and Addison. There is nothing I love more than spending time with my family. We enjoy traveling and going to the movies. We attend church at Bryant Church of God where we are actively involved.

Teaching is my passion. I’ve always said that I feel that the teaching profession is something you are born to do. I can’t imagine doing anything else.

In addition to teaching in the classroom, I coach Jr. High girls’ basketball and teach at our 21st CCLC after school program. It’s a pretty busy life, but I love what I do. I love my school and feel blessed to be a part of NSM.
