I grew up in Lakewood, Colorado. Beginning in Kindergarten, I attended Compass Montessori School through seventh grade. Despite my departure as a student at Compass, I maintained a connection by working in the aftercare and summer program through high school.
I hold a Bachelor’s of Science in biology from Colorado State University, a Master’s of Education from Loyola University Maryland, and hold my AMI Montessori certification through the Montessori Institute of Atlanta.
I am an avid hockey fan, love the outdoors, and enjoy snowboarding in the winter. I have been working at Compass Montessori as an upper elementary teacher since 2014 and look forward to many more!
Jennifer is a certified elementary and special education teacher and has a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Elementary Education. She taught 1st and 2nd grade as well as working as a reading specialist in DPS prior to taking time to raise her 3 children, now ages 11, 13 and 15 - all of whom attended Compass beginning in Children’s House. Jennifer is thankful to be raising her family in the beautiful state of Colorado where she enjoys backpacking, hiking, snowboarding, and gardening. She is also a Jazzercise instructor of 8 years. She worked as a 2nd grade assistant at Mountain Phoenix last year, but is excited to join Compass this year as an employee as well as a parent - a goal she has had since her children started at the Wheat Ridge campus 10 years ago!
