Arapahoe Ridge Elementary alum, Jackie Brand is happy to be back where it all started! She discovered she wanted to be a teacher when she was in second grade right here at Arapahoe Ridge! Jackie taught amongst the peaches in Palisade, CO but is now back with her family on the Front Range. Jackie enjoys spending time with her family (especially her two nephews), being outside, trying new restaurants, learning puny jokes, and reading mystery books (but her favorite book is The Hunger Games.) One fun fact about Jackie is she loves to write with chalk!
