Teacher and Staff Member for the Month of January
Congratulations to Jerry Wilkens, 5th grade teacher, and Connie Minton, Para educator, for being nominated by their peers to be recognized as Teacher and Staff Members of the Month!
Jerry is a friendly, patient, knowledgeable teacher who prioritizes building relationships with his students. This helps motivate them to give their best efforts in the classroom and throughout the school. He's a team player who works with his team to best meet the needs of our students. Always the professional, Jerry is a role model for our youngsters in how he goes about his job and dealings with people. We are fortunate to have him here at TES--thank you, Mr. Wilkens!
Connie is a long-time Para educator at TES who works not only with helping kindergartners and their teachers, but provides consistent, high quality supervision before school and during lunch. Connie is extremely flexible and fills in whenever and wherever we need her at TES. She loves the kids and helps them to be successful. We appreciate her dedication, cheerfulness, and taking pride in a job well done, no matter what the job is. We appreciate all you do, Mrs. Minton!
