My name is Mrs. Count and I am looking forward to a new semester and to seeing your students again. I have been involved with metro-area schools for over 29 years both as a parent and teacher. This will be my 18th year teaching and my 6th year at JFK. Prior to entering the teaching profession I spent over 20 years working for various telecommunications corporations in sales and marketing positions which allows me to bring a real-world perspective to my classes. In addition to my teaching credentials I have a BS in Marketing from the University of Colorado and an MBA from the University of Montana.
I am married and mom to three boys – Matthew, Andrew and Sean. Matthew graduated from Thomas Jefferson HS and the University of Northern Colorado. After teaching English in Bangkok, Thailand Matthew came back to the United States and finished law school. He is currently working as an attorney and living in Nebraska. Andrew graduated from George Washington HS and the University of Denver. After working at a law firm for a year he also went to law school. Andrew is married and lives in Aurora. My youngest, Sean graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School in 2017 and is pursuing his business degree at the Metropolitan State University of Denver. Outside of class I am an avid reader and enjoy traveling, and spending time with my family which includes our three dogs and two cats. I also enjoy gaming and you might find me online playing World of Warcraft.
