Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Weber

Hello, my name is Jill Weber and I’m the 7th and 8th grade Science Teacher. This is my 4th year at the Colorado Springs Charter Academy. I’m a Colorado native having grown up in Northern Colorado, I’m a Broncos and Rockies fan.

I have a grown daughter, Kat, who lives in Westminster, CO with her husband, Steven, and two step-daughters, Sara and Layla. I also have a dog, Sobe, who is a maltese-yorkie mix.

A little bit about my qualifications and philosophy; I have over 20 years experience in education at various levels and in various capacities. I received my B.A. in Physics Education from the University of Northern Colorado. I then taught high school level Chemistry I, Chemistry II, Physics, and Earth Science in Kansas. I also worked at Mid-Continent Research for Education and Learning (McREL) in Denver as a consultant in the Standards Department where I helped write and revise pre-K through 12th grade Science and Math standards, aligning them to testing standards, such as NAEP, for various state education departments and school districts.

I love teaching the sciences! It is a wonderful subject because the sciences are so readily applied to our everyday lives. I have found that students enjoy learning, and learn more deeply and more completely if they can see how the subject matter affects them personally, so I try to make scientific concepts as applicable to their real life as I can. I hope, and expect, that my students and I will have a lot of fun developing the skills necessary to think, question, and analyze as they learn the world of science.
