Welcome to J. Allen Axson!
My name is Amy Roberts and I am excited to welcome you and your family to J. Allen Axson. I have been an assistant principal for eleven years and an educator for the past twenty-two 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 experience travelling abroad, and I completed an internship in Washington D.C. 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 nineteen years and we have two pretty amazing teenagers who attended Axson from PreK-3 through 5th grade. My son is a junior in high school and my daughter is an eighth grader in Middle School. Both children attend Duval county Public Schools! Axson prepared both of my children for success in middle and high school.
We also love animals. We have a cat, Lucy, and three dogs, Chase, Bruce, and Bettis. Bettis was 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 families that are joining us this year.
Amy B. Roberts
