Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Jay Summers
I am a home grown Coloradan having done my entire pre-college years in the Eagle Valley School District. After graduation I was able to attend Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah for four years. There I received my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education. Through the University I was able to complete my student teaching in the Aldine Independent School District which resides in the heart of the Houston Metro area. After completing my student teaching I moved back to Utah and there moved with my husband down to Phoenix. I taught in the Madison Elementary School district for five years. There I was heavily involved in our transition from a traditional school to an International Baccalaureate school, piloted a Bring Your Own Device program, and established the First Lego League Robotics club. When given a chance to return home to Colorado my husband and I jumped at the chance. This is my third year at Colorado STEM Academy in the 4th and 5th grade team.
I love for students to take ownership of their work. I believe that when they believe amazing things are possible. I want my classroom to be a place where children bloom and discover who they are and what it is they really love and enjoy.
