Mrs. Jenny Henriksen
My name is Jenny Henriksen and I have the privilege of serving the students, families, and community of Scott Elementary as the Assistant Principal. I look forward to working with you all personally but I would like to give you some information about my background. This is my 1st year as Assistant Principal, but my 10th year in education. I taught K-6 for three years as the Science/Technology teacher at Bella Romero Academy. I then continued by teaching career as a 7th grade homeroom educator for the next 3 years. During this time I earned my master's degree from CSU in Educational Leadership and then became the Dean of Culture at Romero for the last three years.
I am originally from Illinois where I met my husband Eric. I am a lifelong Chicago sports fan through the good and the bad. I began my career in education at Northern Illinois University and received my undergrad degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Middle school. Now in Colorado, my husband and I enjoy spending time outdoors with our dog Wrigley (Go Cubs!). I feel privileged to be living out my dream in a school that is truly exceptional. I assure you that my commitment to excellence and my eagerness to grow as a leader will be something that I carry with me everyday when working with students, staff, and families.
