Cadena, Jessica Ann » Welcome to Ms. Cadena's Physics Class!

Welcome to Ms. Cadena's Physics Class!

Hello and welcome! My name is Ms. Jessica Ann Cadena. I'm super thrilled to be your Physics instructor this year at Akins. This is my seventh year of teaching and my second year as an Austin ISD educator.  I bring five years of diverse teaching experiences with me to the Akins family.  I'm a native Texan and prior to becoming an Austinite I lived in San Antonio, Texas for 15 years.  There I attended the University of the Incarnate Word and studied both Vision Science and Biology as a pre-med student before graduating with a B.S. in Biology in 2012.  Before moving to San Antonio I lived in the border city of Laredo, Texas where I was born and raised. There I attended United High School North (Hook'em Horns Hook'em!) and following graduation, enrolled as a student at Texas A&M International University where I spent three years pursuing pre-medical Biology studies before moving to San Antonio.  In 2019 I also had the pleasure of attending UT Austin for post baccalaureate studies.  For leisure I enjoy spending time with my family, relaxing with friends, reading, and volunteering at my church. Additionally, I enjoy various fitness activities such as cross-lifting, running, dancing, and hiking in nature.

An Invitation of Discovery


Welcome to our class. I'm Ms. Cadena and I'm super stoked to be your science teacher this year. I'm looking forward to sharing a year of fun filled activities that spark your interests and capture your imagination with all the magic that is Science. Together we will learn about the processes of nature, the awe-inspiring landscapes it paints for us, and study about all the fascinating creatures that inhabit each ecosystem. We will embark on a stellar journey that leads us to the heavens and learn about the sun, the moon, the stars, and the planets that coalesce from galactic dust. We will investigate the physical world through the interactions of atoms, and learn about the properties of matter that composes the world around us. Together we will discover the magical properties of chemical elements and the reactions they undergo. We will delve into the awesome dynamics of Physics; harness the power of gravity, and investigate its relationship with mass, matter, and the space-time continuum. Together we will learn of its effects on the world around us. I invite you to come and join me on this incredible journey of discovery.

"Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.  He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.  He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies.  He fills my life with good things.  My youth is renewed like the eagle's!"
