Meet the Staff
Hello! My name is Jennifer Covington and I am an 8th grade Language Arts teacher at Collins. This is my eighth year in education and my fifth teaching 8th grade. I love middle school and I always tell people it's because I'm a little bit of a middle schooler myself. Some of my favorite literature has been written for this age group and I can't wait to share it with you throughout the year.
I enjoy reading, spending time outside, traveling, trying new things and spending time with my family. I grew up right here on the west side of Fort Worth in White Settlement. I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Adam, for 13 years and we have two wonderful kiddos: a curly-headed girl named Emory (8) and a freshly-minted 1st grader named Everett (6). We are a family that values education, justice, experiences over things, cross-cultural learning, simplicity and a rich spiritual life.
I am looking forward to spending time with you at LCMS!
