Jared Thompson

Born and raised by educators in the Central Cascade mountains of Oregon, Aspen has been a true home away from home with endless opportunities for a family in love with the outdoors, surrounded by great education. I have been teaching elementary Physical Education for 17 years; 14 of which at Aspen Elementary. Giving kids skill sets in a broad range of sports with formative knowledge in physical fitness components is important, but sparking interest in avenues for an active lifestyle is my first priority. From this, I have also directed energy in my summer business, Mountain Kids Academy, offering further instruction and inspiration in traditional and alternative sports, as well as backcountry education. I am an avid hunter, horseman, ski-racer-turned-racing-coach-turned-recreational-skier, kayaker, biker, hiker, camper, ceramicist, handyman, welder, dad, and husband enjoying the journey. I look forward to working with your kids.
