Jessica Zwaschka, Spearfish, SD

Hello from Spearfish. I am Jessica Zwaschka, chemistry teacher and science department chair at Spearfish High School. As a career-long member of the Palmetto State Teacher's Association and now SDEA, I believe that it vital to be a supporter of other teachers and the profession. I first joined SEA/SDEA 21 years ago because it was important to me to be a member of my professional organization. Being a member of SEA/SDEA is way for us to be better together. In times of celebration and in times where we need support, our professional peers can be an amazing network of support. From legal advice, to political advocacy, to fighting for fair and equitable wages, we're better together.
