Jennifer Roberts: Social Emotional Learning Specialist

VM- 303-982-9826

Born and raised in the midwest, I attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison and received my undergraduate degree in Microbiology. After working as a research scientist for three years, I decided to obtain my teaching license in secondary science. I worked for about a decade as a middle and high school science teacher (mostly in Jeffco) before transitioning into counseling. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my husband and children, trail running, skiing, and just simply being outdoors. I am truly looking forward to supporting students throughout the middle school years, celebrating successes and problem-solving challenges!
