Joanna Jensen - Assistant Principal

Welcome to Mission San Jose High School.  I'm excited to work with MSJ community as Assistant Principal.  I have worked with Fremont Unified School District at Mission San Jose High School this past six years as a school counselor and am thrilled to begin my seventh year in this new role. I look forward to getting to know the students, staff, parents, and the Mission community better as Assistant Principal.

I went into education with the belief that all students should have opportunities to learn and grow to become engaged members of our society.

I earned a B.A. in Sociology with a Minor in Criminal Justice from Sonoma State University and M.S, in Educational Counseling from National University.  Most recently, I earned a certificate in School Violence and Cultural as I am always looking forward for opportunities to enhance my knowledge in various areas. 

I am strong believer in self-care and know that we cannot have great accomplishments without taking care of ourselves.  One of my favorite activities outside of the school is dance.  I grew up in a dance studio and now have the privilege to share my knowledge of tap, jazz, and ballet with children of all ages.  I really encourage all students to find an activity outside of school that keeps them active and promotes self-care.

This year, I am assigned to assist all 11th-grade students and 9th-grade students with last names M-Z.  I'm looking forward to a wonderful school year ahead.  Be sure to stop by my office to say hi!
