Jesse Kock

English-Language Arts Teacher

Began at Teachwell:


Why did you choose this field?

I was working in the finance field but did not feel fulfilled in life at all. I decided a few years back to get my certification and could not be happier.

What did you think you were going to be when you grew up?

Growing up I always assumed I would play in the NBA, until I stopped growing completely in 7th grade.

Why Teachwell?

I love helping children who need additional support and facilitation.

What are you proudest of?

The hard work and dedication I have put in to land a job in my dream career.

How do you hope to make a difference?

I hope to make lasting impacts on students by getting to know what really makes them tick.

What lessons has your work life taught you?

Never give up on a child, with the right nurturing anyone can accomplish anything.

What is your background? Experience, degrees, skills, etc.?

I have a B.S in Sociology from SDSU, and recently obtained my teaching certification from there as well.

People would be surprised to know that I . . .

attended four different Universities and switched majors many times.
