Hello Mustang Community!
My name is Jessie Branford and I am so excited to be joining this fabulous school and community this year! Although this is my first year teaching at Midland, this is my 6th year teaching in School District 11. Prior to this school year, I taught third grade for four years and first grade for one year, all at Monroe Elementary.
I am a District 11 graduate from Doherty High School and I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development and Family Studies from Colorado State University in Fort Collins in 2008. After graduating college, I was able to travel the world with my husband as we worked to maintain the rock climbing walls on Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise lines. We visited over 20 different countries and over 50 different cities around the world, over a time span of five years. These experiences have shaped who I am as a person and a teacher. I love sharing my passion for traveling and discovery with my students!
I have been married to my wonderful husband for 7 years and we have one son. When I am not at school I enjoy relaxing with my family and attending local and touring theatre productions in Colorado Springs and Denver. I am also a huge Denver Broncos fan and can’t wait for football season to start again!
I am so happy to be a part of this community and I am very excited for the new adventure of teaching a 2/3 combo class this year!
