Ms. Edmunds is Jess's fifth grade teacher. She has a "hippie-like" attitude and the other kids pretend not to like her very much. However, Jess immediately adores her. She is very different from Jess's other teachers for several reasons. First, she provides him with a lot of positive feedback--of which Jess has received little. Secondly, Jess feels that he can share his drawings with her. Ms. Edmunds is incredibly impressed by his drawings and tells him that he is a "diamond in the rough". This is the person who finally makes Jess feel cared for.
