Second Grade

Jane Jensen
Second Grade Teacher


My name is Jane Jensen, and I’m one of the second-grade teachers here at Arvada K-8. I’ve been teaching in Jeffco for ten years—one year at Martensen Elementary and the other nine teaching here at Arvada K-8. I grew up in Arvada and attended Little Elementary, Moore Middle School and Pomona High School. I’m a graduate of the University of Northern Colorado and received my teaching license in primary education from Metropolitan State University. I have also completed an ESL endorsement at Regis University.

I’m married, and we have a daughter who’s almost 4 and an energetic boxer named Archer. Our family loves being active. We like working out, riding dirt bikes, doing all sorts of water sports and snowboarding.

I love teaching and went into education thinking that teachers needed to excite children about school to make learning fun. I now know that it takes much more than that, but, with a certain amount of inspiration, enthusiasm and motivation, I think that I can help my students develop the qualities they will need to be successful. I hope they will also develop a sense of empathy, be good citizens and know the value of hard work. I can’t wait to establish a life-long relationship with your child.

Darren Lee Second Grade Teacher

Hi, My name is Darren Lee.  I have taught 2nd at Arvada K-8 for 10 years, since our inception.  I taught 2nd and 3rd grade (mostly 2nd) at Russell Elementary for 17 years prior, so this will be my 28th year teaching 2nd grade for our community!

I love the neighborhood and the people in it.


P.S.  I'm the guy on the bike you see coming into the building...
