Phone: (812) 462-4307

Hello! My name is Jessica Larimer and I am a Kindergarten teacher at Rio Grande Elementary School. This is my 5th year teaching and being a Bobcat! I graduated from ISU in December of 2017 with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Special Education. I co-teach our school Drama Club and assist with our Honor Chior. I also love helping with our school Christmas productions each year.

I have two sweet little boys, Leo and Raph. Leo is 2 and Raph will be 1 in January. We love to play outside, bake, and make trips to Starbucks. Yum! In addition to spending time with my sweet little family and my friends, I love to watch movies, read books and comic books, and go shopping. I am a proud product of the Vigo County School Corperation and attended DeVaney, Woodrow Wilson, and Terre Haute South. Being a teacher is my passion and I’m very lucky to have my dream job here at Rio Grande! I look forward to meeting you and your little one!

To communicate, I use the Seesaw app in my classroom. It is free and allows parents and teachers to message each other with the ease of a text. Seesaw is free on both Android and Apple devices. If your little one is in my classroom, you will get a paper sent home with instructions on how to join our Seesaw page until then, you can contact via my email.
