Our teachers are amazing, which is why we share the story of a school’s Teacher of the Year every week ... please help us celebrate 2021 Mountain Road Elementary School Teacher of the Year Jenny Sullivan!
One of Mountain Road Elementary School Teacher of the Year Jenny Sullivan’s former students put it best:
“I have learned from teachers all over the world. I have learned in private schools and public schools. I have learned in international schools with international teachers. Mrs. Sullivan is one of the best teachers I have ever learned from. Mrs. Sullivan is more than a teacher overall; she is a friend to me and anyone she teaches.”
Ms. Sullivan, who this school year moved to Knox Elementary School STEM Academy where she teaches second grade, began her teaching career six years ago. She quickly has become well-respected among students, parents and colleagues. She has been tapped to serve on curriculum writing committees and to participate in the Superintendent’s Leadership Academy, has earned her master’s degree and educational leadership certification and is pursuing a doctorate degree. A Microsoft Innovative Educator and Common Sense digital citizenship certified educator, Ms. Sullivan is known for her talent in blending technology into classroom learning and served last school year as a Digital Learning teacher.
“She is the teacher everyone turns to for help with anything related to technology,” her former Principal said, noting she also is a creative and caring educator and a rising teacher leader. “She is the best of the best.”
In her own words: “I know I’ve done my job as an educator when my students learn how to be compassionate, innovative and life-long learners.”
