Mrs. Elise Jessen

Hello! My name is Elise Jessen and I am the instructor of our AHS Teacher Academy program as well as an instructional coach within our building. 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
