Meet the Teacher


Mrs. Gardner & Ms. Sara

My name is Jessica Gardner and I have been teaching at Saint Athanasius School for the last 13 years.  I spent 9 years in 4th grade, 3 years in second grade, and am very excited to begin my first year in PreK! I attended schools in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia from Kindergarten through 12th grade.  I received my  degree from West Chester University in Elementary Education and Special Education. 

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, and still currently reside in the area.  When I am not at school, I love spending time with my family! I have a wonderful husband, Sean, and two beautiful daughters, Sadie and Maggie. I love to travel, bake, and read, among other things!
