Jill Fellman has had lifelong involvement in Jeffco Schools. She attended Patterson Elementary, Carmody Junior High (now Middle School) and Alameda High School. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame with a degree in mathematics, she returned to Jeffco to teach secondary math – first at Bear Creek High School and then at Moore Middle School.
Her 18 years in the classroom were followed by 12 years working in Jeffco's administration in curriculum and development. She retired from Jeffco in 2009 as a director of Learning and Educational Achievement. She spent the next two years as adjunct faculty for both the University of Colorado Denver (UCD) and Colorado State University (CSU), training student teachers in Jeffco and throughout the metro area.
Jill's passion is the learning process, and she is focused on ensuring that Jeffco Schools provides a great educational experience to every student in the district, every day.
Jill and her husband Ken have lived in Arvada for 24 years, and as parents, they both have been active in their local schools at every level. Their two children attended Sierra Elementary School, Oberon Middle School, and are graduates of Ralston Valley High School.
