About Our Team
Jessica Goodpasture: I completed my Bachelors in General Studies in 1994 and completed my Masters in Early Childhood Unified in 2013. I taught PreK for 8 years and have been with the USD 259 school district for 16 years. I completed training in Alphabetic Phonics through Fundamental Learning Center, and I received my ESOL endorsement in 2016. I have two amazing daughters (one of whom is a first-year teacher in our district!) with my husband, Tim, who I've been married to for 26 years. I am excited to be teaching 1st Grade this year and can’t wait to meet my students. We have a great year ahead of us and I look forward to watching your children learn and grow into amazing leaders!
Stephani Brooks: I received my education degree from WSU in 1992 and became a Certified Dyslexia Therapist in 2008. I went on to teach reading and writing to kids in Pre-K through 8th grade at Central Christian Academy for 10 years. Since then, I have earned my Masters in Teaching from K-State, received my ESOL endorsement, and moved to first grade at Gammon! I have 4 kids ages 17-22 and have been married for 27 years to my husband, Mark, who teaches math at East High. I'm so excited to lay solid foundations with our first graders and help them become the leaders they can be!
DeAnna Jefferson: I am a first-year teacher and new to the Gammon Knights team! A little about me: I have 2 teenagers, ages 16 and 13, and have been married for 17 years. I also have a master's degree in teaching from Wichita State University, as well as several years of teaching experience at both Head Start and with Wichita Public Schools. I am ready and excited to have a fantastic year teaching first grade!
