Mrs. Jessica Jensen
Hi, my name is Jessica Jensen, this is my 18th year teaching Physical Education in the West Ada School District. Upon graduating from Boise State University, I started my teaching career sharing my time between McMillan, Lake Hazel and Eagle Elementary. I was happy to move to Discovery the year it was built (2003). I love teaching PE and instilling a love of being active with my students. My husband (Shaun) and I have three boys: Luke (12), Chase (10) and Cole (6), and it seems our household is active ALL THE TIME! My eldest son, Luke, attended Discovery and is now a 7th grader at Heritage Middle School. Chase is enjoying being a 5th grader here and Cole is loving first grade. So along with teaching at Discovery, I also get to enjoy the parent perspective and getting to know the wonderful families that attend our school.
I truly believe it is the partnership between parents and teachers that help make a child's education meaningful and successful. At Discovery, students have the opportunity to participate in Discovery Dashers (our run/walk club that meets twice a week throughout the entire school year), Jump Rope for Heart (Feb.), the District Speed Jump Competition (March) and the District Fun Run (April) and we are a Fuel Up to Play 60 school...As you can see our students have a number of ways to get active beyond the regular PE classroom. My goal is to find something that will inspire your child to get up and get active! Your support of my efforts and programs is greatly appreciated!! Feel free to contact me any time if you would like to volunteer with ANY of these activities, or would just like to witness the fun we are having in PE--the more the merrier!
