Mr. Jared S. Christensen; Principal

I am very excited to lead the Willow Creek team as the principal. 

 I grew up in the Treasure Valley and graduated from Capital High School.  I attended Boise State University, where I majored in Elementary Education.  I have been married for 15 years and have 4 children.  My wife Katie is a group fitness instructor at the YMCA.  We enjoy watching reality TV, and spending time as a family.  This summer Katie and I have the opportunity to tour Italy.

 After I graduated from Boise State, my wife and I wanted an adventure, so we moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. I taught in Las Vegas for 2 years.  When we decided the adventure was over, we knew we wanted to return home to the Treasure Valley.  After being hired by the Meridian School District I taught at Lake Hazel Elementary.  While I was at Lake Hazel Elementary I completed my master’s degree in Educational Leadership.  I left Lake Hazel Elementary after earning my master’s degree, and I spent 3 years as an elementary administrative intern at Ponderosa Elementary and Prospect Elementary.  For the past 3 years I have been an assistant principal at Lake Hazel Middle School. 

 I love to watch students learn.  My goal is to build a positive culture at Willow Creek that incorporates 21st century skills, high expectations for students, collaboration, and quality instruction.

I was born and raised in Boise.  I graduated from Borah High School and went on to graduate from the University of Idaho with an undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education.  I went to lawschool after college and received my J.D. in 2001.  I have been married since 2000.  We have three boys.  I practiced law until 2008 when my middle son was born.  I enjoyed practicing law as a prosecuting attorney but realized that my heart was at home, so I left to raise my crazies.  

My oldest son started school at Willow Creek in 2012 when the school was just K-2 and under construction for the additional grades.  I immediately fell in love with the school, its 21st century philosophy and the top-notch teachers.  I was heavily involved in the PTA for several years and served on the PTA board.  When my youngest son was in kindergarten I was given the opportunity to work as the part-time receptionist at Willow Creek.  I have seen the school grow from just a couple hundred kiddos to nearly 700.  I still love the school and staff and I love getting to know the students and thier families!
