Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jessica Flanagan
A native of Tuscumbia, I truly love teaching in the Florence City Schools system, a community I grew up in. I received my Bachelor's, Master's, and Education Specialist degrees from Auburn University in Business and Marketing Education. I then taught high school business classes for several years in the Huntsville and Decatur areas, and I've taught Career Preparedness at Florence Middle School for the past 2 years. As I begin my 8th year as an educator, I'm thrilled to transition to a position in Work-based Learning, working with our Cooperative Education and LAUNCH programs.
My husband, Nick, and I have been married for 8 years. We have two children, Harper and Asher.
Cooperative Education (or Co-op) is a work-based learning opportunity that allows students to work a part time job of their choosing as a part of their school schedule. LAUNCH is another work-based learning opportunity that allows students to work in a "placement" associated with their career interests. These placements occur during or after the school day.
