Jennifer Keller Johnson

My name is Jennifer Keller Johnson. This will be my 4th year as the school psychologist at Kenton Elementary School. I am very fortunate to work at such a wonderful children, families, and staff who support me in living out my personal and professional philosophies of practice when working with students.

Through my life journey I found my calling to work with children and families to support and promote the development of resiliency skills, especially social-emotional and mental health awareness, skills, and practices. In order to live out my life’s purpose, I have solicited many educational and clinical experiences to support students, teachers, and families. I completed my Master’s degree in Educational Psychology in 2008 from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. While working with children and families in Aurora Public Schools, I completed my Doctorate degree in School Psychology in 2013. Over the years I have had many diverse opportunities to work with children, families, and staff in Las Vegas Nevada, Weld County District 6, and Adams 14 as well as in a university mental health clinic. All of these experiences have developed my skills in supporting social-emotional, behavioral, and cognitive development in children and adults 3 to 21 years old. At Kenton, I strive to do what is best for children by supporting them socially, behaviorally, and academically. Some of my roles include: implementing behavioral and social-emotional interventions, providing individual and group counseling services, consulting with teachers, supporting our school-wide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports team, facilitating our Crisis Intervention Team, supporting our special education team and our Diverse Learning Centers, and providing staff and parent trainings. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wonderful husband in the lovely Colorado outdoors. My job is to accelerate learning for every APS student, every day. I do my job by systemically providing individualized and group support, consultation, and evaluation data and expertise in the areas of social/emotional, behavioral, and cognitive functioning to directly and indirectly address the needs of APS’s children, their families, and staff. My community needs me to do my job.
