Mrs. Van Thorre

Hello! My name is Jessica and I am so excited as I enter my fifth year of teacher I will be able to support students in K-5 at Winona Elementary! Great things are happening around Winona and I am honored to be a part of the excitement! I love children and am very privileged to work with your little ones each and every day, thank you for sharing them with me!

I am proud to share that I went back to school in July 2014 to finish my bachelors degree in education. I graduated in April 2016 with my bachelors in Interdisciplinary Studies K-8 from Western Governors University. I am currently enrolled at Lamar University working on my Masters of Education in Administration with a planned graduation in February 2021.

​Prior to working at Winona, I worked at an elementary school in Poudre School District and before that I was a stay at home mom for our four children. Emma is 16 and a junior, Ethan is 15 and a sophmore and Mia is 13 and a 8th grader. My step-son Alec is 25 and a mechanic for Mercedes in Loveland. I have been married to my wonderful husband Marshall for 18 years and we love that Northern Colorado is our home. Marshall works in Denver at Sun Enterprises as a sales manager and breeds reptiles on the side.  

I love spending time with my family and on Sunday's I am always cheering on the Broncos!! In my spare time, I also enjoy sewing, knitting, baking and photography. Let's be honest pretty much 
crafting of any kind!!
