Mrs. Jennifer Hilborn
I am so happy to be your child's teacher! I enjoy teaching so much that I look forward to going to work each week! I love teaching Social Studies because there is so much to learn from geography, history, and current events. My love of Language Arts/English helps me teach Social Studies because I get to implement reading and writing skills in Social Studies. I am fortunate to have been able to teach both Language Arts and Social Studies during my teaching career.
Outside of education, I have many hobbies. I enjoy reading, watching movies, and playing with my animals. I aim to read an hour a day, but sometimes I just cannot put my book down. I have four pets at home. I have three cats and one dog. These animals keep me super busy and entertained because they are all so different. I am a child of Colorado (even though not a child anymore). I graduated from Colorado State University in 2011 with a Bachelor's in History and a Minor in Political Science.
I have taught in District 20 and now in District 49. I enjoy teaching at Skyview Middle School because it is such a welcoming school and community. The teachers I get to work with are amazing! I love being part of team 6A and 6th grade in general. I have only ever taught 6th grade and love seeing the growth and maturity these students demonstrate every year. I look forward to teaching your student this year and instilling a passion for Social Studies within them. Thank you for support at home.
