JENNIFER WIGGS ED.D.
I'm an educational leader and professional learning expert residing in the Mile High City. I currently work with Aurora Public Schools as Director for four K-12 schools serving nearly 1500 students. I also work with Colorado Christian University as an affiliate instructor for the School of Education. This website showcases some of the work I've done, resources that others might find helpful, and some of the experiences that have shaped me as an educator. Alongside my work, I am passionate about the work of therapy dogs and mental health. I believe every child needs early access to social-emotional learning and mental health supports to build coping and resiliency skills.
Feel free to connect with me and share what you're working on. Together, we can make a positive impact on the lives of students in our communities.
