Mr. J Trevor Jacklin




I grew up in suburban Denver and am a huge Bronco fan.  After going to college in Salt Lake City, Denver and London, England I graduated from Metropolitan State University in Denver with a BA in History and a minor in Political Science.  I am married, and our son graduated from BGHS in 2019, earning the IB Diploma.  He is now is a Dean's List student and Cross Country/Track athlete at Division II Northern State University in South Dakota.  Go Wolves!

I am doing everything as close to as normal as possible.  I have the same expectations of myself that I would if we were in class together.  I am teaching the same material I would teach if we were together. and I have the same expectations of the students.  The standards for my classes have not changed just because we are not in the classroom together.  When we are in a Zoom session I expect students to be engaged and be ready to participate, just as I would in class.  How it is done has changed somewhat, but what is ultimately done hasn't changed one bit.
