Ms. Jennifer Severson
Welcome! I am Jennifer Severson! As a fourth generation native of Colorado Springs, I have watched our, what was once small town of Colorado Springs, become the giant city it is today. Growing up on the west side and attending D11 schools myself, it feels like a second home at Chipeta.
I have been teaching as my second career for the last 12 years and absolutely love it! Prior to teaching, I worked in a pharmacy for 16 years, where I obtained a mountain of experiece in math, science, and design and marketing. I planned and organized conferences with doctors and nurses from all over the country. What an exciting background to have going into teaching!
As much as I love teaching, the best part of my life is my family! I am blessed to have 2 children, Joseph and Lindsay, 2 step-children, Heather and Lindsey, and one grand daughter, Scarlett! My son, Joseph, who is a Doherty HS graduate and PPCC attendee. His passion is art, art history, and jewlery design and construction that is absolutely beautiful! My daughter, Lindsay, is going to be a Doherty graduate this year and will be attending UCCS to persue her passion in Forensic Science. I could not be more proud of both of my children! Finally, is my husband, Ray. We love the outdoors and camp frequently any time of the year; yes, even in the snow! We enjoy long motorcycle rides, and in the summer I love gardening.
