Ms. Jill Jellison

Hi there and welcome! I was born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, but easily call Arizona my home. My family and I have lived in the Cave Creek area since 2010 and I am elated to return to teaching at Cactus Shadows High School.  While I'm returning to the falcon nest, my daughter will be returning to BMES as a bobcat. We're proud to be part of the Cave Creek Unified School District family.  I attended Arizona State University and graduated Summa Cum Laude with two B.A. Degrees: English and Secondary Education. Teaching is my passion and I'm so happy to be here with you and learn from you, too. While I do love a good book (and talking about them) art, travel, film, music, photography, hiking and a good laugh-- also bring me to my happy place.
