Mrs. Jessica Jensen

My name is Jessica Jensen, I have been teaching Physical Education for 22 years in the West Ada School District.  I was delighted to come to Discovery the year it was built (2003). I teach four days a week, with Wednesdays off.  I love teaching PE and hope to instill a love for being active.  My husband (Shaun) and I have three boys: Luke, Chase and Cole, and it seems with their schedules our household is active ALL THE TIME!  All three of my boys got their start here at Discovery. My eldest son, Luke, will now be a Senior at Renaissance High School.  Chase will be a Sophomore at Rocky Mountain High School and Cole is excited to be heading to Middle School at Heritage as a 6th grader. So along with teaching at Discovery, I also get to enjoy the parent perspective with having kids at all levels within the West Ada District. 

I am looking forward to the 2021-22 school year and the excitement that comes with teaching elementary students.  Their enthusiasm is contagious! I also look forward to the challenge of getting to know ALL of the students here at Discovery and finding ways to engage them in physical activities and help them find success. Part of this success comes from a strong parent/teacher partnership, so please reach out any time if you have questions/concerns.

Here's to a great year!
