Jessica Burger


Ms. Jessica was born in the too sunny Los Angeles County. Her hometown is small and historical, influencing her academic journey toward becoming a medievalist and historian of American history. She graduated from the community college Citrus College and continued the discipline at California State University, Long Beach. Now, she works just as hard and passionately as the students of Arbor to gain her Master’s degree in Information Sciences online at the University of Washington.

Cultures of the world fascinate her — the histories of the food and music specifically! One day, she will fill a scrapbook from her travels to Spain, Egypt, Ireland, Scotland, and sailing the Mediterranean, and more. Her stomach will be just as full, too.

Her many interests range from anime to zebras, yet her favorite things to do are: read, play historical board/video games, and tickle the ivories (play the piano). At the moment, she has begun her goal to learn all the songs from Roger and Hammerstein’s Sound of Music. She also cosplays (dresses up like cartoon characters) during her spare time! She has also been a die-hard Ariel fan since birth. She used to be a cast member at Disneyland Resort.

She currently resides in Los Angeles County with her fiancé named after a prince, and their shy tabby cat named Tuckie the Tiger Boy.
