My name is Angela Higgins. I am so thankful to be a part of the Trip family! I attended Gwinnett County Public Schools from Kindergarten through 12th grade, and graduated from Brookwood High School. I am so glad to now be teaching in Gwinnett County! I graduated from Kennesaw State University in May 2013 with a Bachelor's in Education. I live in the Grayson community with my husband, our daughter Caydence,  and our two pets. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family, walking around the neighborhood or the park, taking naps, playing with Caydence, and watching tv. I am excited for another awesome year at Trip!

Mrs. Jessica Jarvis

Hi! I am Jessica Jarvis and I am so excited to be part of the Trip Elementary kindergarten team! I am a wife to my high school sweetheart, and a mother to a sweet baby girl. Anyone who knows me, knows that I have had a passion for teaching my entire life. As a child, I had a class full of stuffed animals, and my siblings that I would practice on. Now that I am an adult and have a “real” classroom of my own, I can say I am living my dream! I grew up attending and graduated from Gwinnett County schools myself, and ended up traveling to Liberty University in Virginia for college following a cheerleading scholarship. After a year at Liberty, I made my way back to Gwinnett and earned my BS in early childhood education with ESOL and reading endorsements from Georgia Gwinnett College. I then began my career as an educator as a Pharr Elementary ram and now could not be more honored to become a Trip Elementary ram!
