About Jessica Delavigne

Jessica Delavigne is currently a district instructional coach and the 2020 district Educator of the Year.  As a district coach, she supports schools’ work with site and district instructional focus areas and initiatives. Working closely with site administrators and staff, she supports the work that is being done with school culture, vision, and beliefs, and ensures that this work drives focus areas within the instructional realm. Ms. Delavigne has gathered experiences at a number of different school sites that have helped her to understand how critical it is to build a school’s culture, identity, and a foundation of collective values in order to effectively address instructional goals that must support all students. Ms. Delavigne understands and has experienced the power of a unified school culture and shared school vision, and knows just how much movement can be made in instruction and professional development if shared, school-wide beliefs are present.
