Hello, Lambkins! My name is Jason Cunningham and I am excited for my first year at Fort Collins High School and tenth overall year of teaching. Prior to teaching here, I graduated from CU Boulder (but root for the Rams now) and then taught in all secondary settings in the Estes Park School District for four years, Mead Middle School for one year, and Northridge High School in Greeley for four years. Aside from the first six years of my life in New York and Texas, I have lived in Colorado the entire time; after 20 years in Estes Park, I lived in Loveland for one year before moving to Fort Collins with my wife six years ago. I love Colorado and Fort Collins in particular!
My wife and I just welcomed our daughter, Adira, into our family on July 15th! She joins our two Chihuahuas, Dusty and Winnie; and our Pomeranian, Kita. Our house is now constantly loud, but we'll take it! In my spare time, you'd most often catch me playing hockey or ice skating at EPIC, wandering through Fort Collins' parks playing Pokemon Go, or riding my bike to Boyd Lake or Spring Canyon. Aside from that, I'm also really into political science, Zelda and Pokemon video games, Magic: the Gathering, narrative-based video games like Detroit: Become Human, and fantasy football and hockey. Starting this fall, I'll also be earning my master's degree from University of Illinois - Springfield. All in all, I'm interested in a wide variety of activities and am frequently down to try new ones; I like to connect with people on a variety of subjects and am looking forward to getting to know all of you this year!
