From the Principal

Anitra Jensen has been an educator for 21 years with a wide range of experiences
including teaching students in all grades k-8. She started her career in a rural k-10
public school where she taught grades 4-6 in a multi-grade classroom. From there she
transitioned to another rural school where she was the only classroom teacher in a k-3
school. She was the building principal as well as the full time teacher and often kids
found that during her 3 years there, she was called mom for often than Mrs. Jensen.
When she went back to school to get her master's degree she started work as a 5th grade
teacher at a laboratory school on the Utah State University campus in Logan, Utah.
While teaching 5th grade, she also worked as an adjunct instructor teaching university
students in the Elementary Education program. She has a bachelor's degree in
elementary education, a master's degree in gifted education as well as a university
endorsement in school and district administration. Mrs. Jensen has lived in the area for
10 years and feels privileged to call this area her home.
She and her husband John spend their free time canoeing, camping, hiking and fishing
whether it's at Lewis Lake in Yellowstone National Park or one of the many rivers found
in Teton Valleys Jackson and Idaho. They love exploring the United States and have a
goal of traveling to each of the 50 states and all of the National Parks.
