My name is Jess Schneider and I am an English teacher and Senior Team Lead for the English Department at NCAS. This is my 3rd year at NCAS. I was born and raised in New York, 90 miles outside NYC. I attended a small liberal arts college with an arts integration lens where I studied journalism and creative non-fiction. After college, I moved to Texas to work for a few educational non-profits before attending the University Of Pennsylvania for my masters in education. I’m loving living in Colorado with my amazing partner and our two dogs we treat like our children! When I’m not at NCAS, you can find me running through Cherry Creek State Park, lifting weights at the gym, hiking with my dogs, at the salon dying my hair bright colors or just exploring Denver with my partner and friends!
