Welcome to J. Allen Axson!
My name is Amy Roberts and I am very excited to welcome everyone to J. Allen Axson for the 2018-2019 school year. I have been an assistant principal for eight years and an educator for the past eighteen years. I grew up in Melbourne, Florida and came to Jacksonville to attend the University of North Florida. I was part of the UNF Honors Program, which gave me experiences to travel abroad and complete an internship in Washington DC at a non-profit organization. I received my Bachelors in Elementary Education and Masters in Educational Leadership from UNF.
I have been married to my husband, Dave, for fifteen years and we have two amazing children who have attended Axson since PreK-3. Last year, my son moved onto Middle School and left the Axson nest. Axson of course prepared him well, and he is doing great.
We also love animals. We have two cats, Maggie and Lucy, and a very energetic Boston Terrier, Bettis, named after the NFL Hall of Fame recipient and former Pittsburgh Steeler, Jerome Bettis! Yes, we are big Steelers fans, but we also root for our home team!
I am looking forward to another incredible year at Axson and getting to know the new families that are joining us this year.
