Mrs. Jennifer Mitchell
I am very excited to begin my new adventure as an Instructional Coach for Palmer Lake Elementary School this year! My past experiences in education include as an elementary classroom teacher, reading interventionist, and a gifted/accelerated specialist. I have also been an assessment coordinator and a gifted director at the district level. I love the small school and rural environment which Palmer Lake includes and I am looking forward to getting to know the students, staff and community.
I hold a Bachelor's degree from Regis University, as well as a Master's in Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment from Regis University. I am also endorsed in gifted education and have a principal license for Colorado.
As an instructional coach, my focus will be to encourage teachers to self-reflect and adapt their teaching to meet the needs of their students. I think my experience of teaching across all elementary grade levels will help me be a valuable member of the Palmer Lake team.
Outside of school, I love hiking, gardening and spending time with my family.
