My name is Ann Rohrer and I am a first-grade teacher at Livermore Valley Academy. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree from CSUChico in education and child development. I obtained my California teaching credential from the University of Phoenix. In addition, I became first level Slingerland trained for Dyslexic students. I have several years of experience, teaching a variety of ages and grade levels. My favorite grade truly is first grade. My experience has been teaching Pre-K through fourth grade, and then sixth grade.
I live here in Livermore with my husband, Scott and our three teenagers, Jacob, Molly and Kate. Jacob is a sophomore at the University Nevada Reno, Molly a senior at Granada High and Kate a sophomore at Granada High. In my former life prior to Covid-19, I was highly involved (10 years) in CYO Track and Field as the volunteer coordinator for over 100 families and for some years I took on the role as coordinator, both jobs at the same time kept me very busy! I also did outreach programs for youth in both the Livermore and Pleasanton area. In the late spring I was part of the agriculture day for all third-grade classes in Livermore, which took place at Livermore High. I also do local volunteering for creek clean-up. I enjoy being involved in the community. Maybe for the 2021-2022 year I’ll be able to help in our community again. Lastly, I am seldom home on a Saturday, because we are away rooting on our own kids at a sporting event. It is so fun! I do have many hobbies and family activities I like to do, its too many to mention. I enjoy traveling and participating in pretty much any water activity.
My name is Jessica Wehber (Ms. Jessica) and I am so excited to be joining the LVA team as a 1st grade teacher. I was raised here in the Bay Area and went up north to get my BA in Elementary Education from the University of Portland. I also minored in Psychology, choosing to focus specifically on how it relates to teaching by taking courses rooted in the psychology of learning and child development. As for my life outside of the classroom, I have an amazing dog named Cooper who is my best friend. Being around animals is a very tranquil experience for me, so I spend most of my time with Cooper as my shadow. He keeps me company when I read, play boardgames with my friends, and take care of our crested gecko, Ripley.
