Hello! My name is Chelsey Jernigan, and I am the new teacher of the deaf at Chappelow Magnet School. You may call me Miss J. I have a master's degree in deaf education from University of Northern Colorado, a bachelor's degree in special education from Metropolitan State University of Denver, and an associate's degree from Front Range Community College.


I am a huge animal lover! I currently have a cat and two ferrets at home, but have experience caring for many other pets like turtles, mice, guinea pigs, hamsters, birds and fish.


This year, I am teaching reading and math for middle school students. I will post updated information about each class as courses continue.


I am motivated and eager to start the year! Please feel free to contact me anytime!
