Mrs. Elise Jessen
Language Arts Teacher
Hello! My name is Elise Jessen and I currently teach English 10, journalism, and yearbook at AHS. I also serve as an adviser for The Talon, our online student newspaper. I graduated with a bachelor's degree in journalism from Iowa State University (Go Cyclones!), and a master's degree in education from Drake University. I began teaching at AHS in 2012, and I consider myself incredibly fortunate to work with such wonderful students and staff every day. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please visit the yearbook page under the "Activities" tab for important yearbook guidelines and deadlines.
