 About Me



My name is Jessica Yaeger and this is my 2nd year at OMS.  I have been married to my husband Matt for 3 years.  I have a kitty named Skeeter that my husband and I consider our child because we talk about him all the time! I am from Owensboro.  I went to the community college for 2 years and then finished up at Murray State University.  I wanted to come back to Owensboro because I love my hometown and my husband and I missed our families.  My favorites include bright colors, books, Fall, and sushi.  I also love my job.  I consider teaching one of the most rewarding careers.  Seeing a child "get it" is one thing I could never put a price on.
