Hello, my name is Jessica Christensen. I am so excited to be joining Stellar Elementary in 1st Grade this year! I have been in the Adams 12 School District for the past four years. Before coming to Stellar, I was an SSN Paraprofessional at Rocky Mountain Elementary, taught Science for a PEAK afterschool program at both Malley Drive Elementary and Rocky Mountain Elementary, and was a long-term substitute in the district. I have my degree in Education from Baylor University, Waco, TX and have been working with children of all ages for over 15 years. I love teaching kids how to read and I have a passion for watching them grow and learn.
Although I am originally a Texas girl, I have been in Colorado for the past 12 years. I have a daughter that graduated from Northglenn High School last year and began college this fall, at Front Range Community College, and twin sons in the 4th Grade – yes, TWIN boys! My sons attend school at Rocky Mountain Elementary. My daughter is working and going to school. My sons just started playing tackle football for the North Metro Jaguars. We are an active, high energy family that loves the outdoors.
I couldn’t be more excited to join the Stellar Elementary Family and am beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to serve the students and parents of this community. Looking forward to a great year!
