Mrs. Jessica Bankester

I am so excited about this school year and to be back as the speech language pathologist at F.E. Burleson Elementary. I'm even more excited that I am now a full-time employee! I am married to Brad Bankester, who is a former Hartselle High graduate. We have two beautiful children named Andy and Caroline. I am very thankful for this opportunity to be able to work at a great school. I love making a difference in the communication skills of preschoolers and elementary students. It's so rewarding to watch the progress each student makes at their own pace. I look forward to seeing all my returning students as well as meeting new students this year!
