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 three pets at home.  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.
