About Mr. Clippinger
Hello! I'm Mr. Clippinger! I love teaching students through engaging learning experiences that connect the real-world to the classroom. I am always learning with and from my students.
As the SIgnificant Support Needs (SSN) teacher at Jefferson, I strive to promote a love of learning by engaging young people in collaborative projects and social impact. We focus on Problem-Based Learning ; empowering students with strategies and tools to become productive members of a solution-based community.
For the last eleven years I have worked in Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) as both a teacher and a teacher mentor. Prior to working in JCPS I worked as an archaeologist, participating in excavations at Pawnee National Grasslands and Carter Lake mapping ancient Native hunting grounds, as well as local digs in Ken Caryl Ranch. In my work there, I focused on life styles of ancient peoples, ceramics, and other textiles.
I'm originally from Denver and have lived here all my life, with a slight respite while serving in the Air Force . When I'm not impacting students at school, you'll likely find me in the great outdoors, or out and about with my wife.
