Mrs. Jessica Bankester

Hello! I'm so excited about starting back to school this year! I love being a SLP, and I am passionate about making big progress to help children communicate. I received my undergraduate degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Montevallo in 2003, and I received my master's degree in Speech Language Pathology from Auburn in 2005. War Eagle! My favorite things to do in speech therapy include incorporating books into speech and language goals and using sensory bins to facilitate learning and to help students engage in lessons. 

I am married to Brad Bankester since 2007, and we have two beautiful children, Andy and Caroline. They keep us active and laughing!  In 2021, we added the most lovable and excitable puppy to our family. We love our mini goldendoodle, Miles! My family loves to go to the beach, hike in the mountains, eat tacos and queso, and swim. 

If I can be of any assistance to anyone this year, please reach out to me with any concerns you have.
