Hello International School at Thornton Middle parents and students. My name is Jessica Eckert and I have been a teacher for four years now. I started my career at a middle school in Grand Junciton, Colorado, however, due family being close to the Denver area it was with a heavy heart I moved back to Denver. I tried high school for a year and realized that middle schoolers are my faviorte people to interact with and inspire. This started my adventure here at ISTM. I am very excited to be teaching Social Studies and Language Arts for seventh grade. This has been my dream job and I feel blessed to be joing ISTM this coming year. My hope is to inspire students to reach their full potential and be successful within themselves. I cannot wait to become part of this community and school. Thank you to the staff that has already helped me and to my students whom have been amazing this far. I look forward for many years to come at the International School.
