Originally from Eugene, Oregon, Jennifer Crim began playing violin at the age of 10. Jennifer studied violin with Richard Fuchs at the University of Northern Colorado and received a Bachelor of Music Education in 2008. In the fall of 2008, Jennifer began her teaching career at Longs Peak Middle School in Longmont, Colorado, where she currently enjoys teaching and directing the orchestra and mariachi ensembles. A member of the Fort Collins Symphony since 2012, Jennifer has also performed with orchestras such as the Greeley Philharmonic Orchestra and the Cheyenne Symphony Orchestra.
As an advocate for music education as well as for emergent bilingual students, Jennifer is currently working toward a Master’s Degree in Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Education at the University of Colorado Denver. She greatly values her students’ diverse funds of knowledge and feels honored to learn from and with them every day. One of her biggest joys is watching her students progress and develop what will hopefully be a lifelong passion for music.
In her free time, Jennifer enjoys hiking, running, and spending time with her husband, Brian, and their two sons, Owen and William.
