How An Ex-Marine Charted A Path From Fallujah To A Colorado Classroom

27J Schools has a rich history of welcoming student teachers like Jessi Warthen into our schools. We know well the benefits student teachers bring to the classroom and school community.

“At Stuart Middle School, we value our partnership with Metropolitan State University of Denver as they provide high quality teacher-candidates. Ms. Warthen has been a great addition to our school community. Her personal experiences have allowed her to connect with our Raptors at a very personal level. The structures and disciplines she is used to allow her to provide a safe and inclusive environment in which our Raptors can succeed academically, socially and emotionally. We are thankful for her contributions to our school,” said Otho E Stuart Middle School Prinicpal Fabricio Velez.

27J celebrates our student teachers for making a commitment to educate not only our students but themselves!
