Mrs. Jenna Whitson
Hello, Wildcats! My name is Jenna Whitson and I am the TLC (Teaching and Learning Coach) at Wilson. I am so excited to be part of this wonderful community and provide our teachers and students with everything needed to have a successful school year. I can't wait to get started! A little about me...
I was born and raised in Colorado Springs. My mother was a master teacher of over 40 years and taught most of her career in District 11. Her passion for teaching and love of children was passed down to me and I am happy to carry on that legacy for our family. I have been teaching for 14 years. I have my Bachelors Degree in English with an elementary emphasis and a Masters Degree in curriculum and instruction. I also have my principal license and I have worked as a summer trainer for the Flippen Group for Capturing Kids' Hearts. I was the 2022 Teacher of the Year at my previous school in Falcon School District 49 and I was nominated for Colorado Teacher of the Year, 2022.
I was blessed to marry my best friend, Scott, in 2016 and we have two incredible children. My son is 5 years old and attends Kindergarten. My daughter is 2 years old and pretty much runs the show with her "Look out, World!" attitude. Although I am extremely proud of my professional accomplishments, nothing tops being a wife and mother. My family is the center of my life and I am grateful to walk this life with them.
In my spare time, I enjoy sleeping... just kidding, I have two small children. What is sleep?! I enjoy running, doing mind and body exercises such as Pilates, reading, binge watching shows while eating ice cream (hence, why I need the running part), drinking Starbucks, and cuddling with my kids before bedtime. You can catch me cheering on the Broncos this fall!
I can't wait to meet you all and get to know all the wonderful families! Wilson is a very special place, and I am honored to be part of it. Let's go, Wildcats!
