Student Nomination Story

I started in band and got the trombone. I wasn't really excited so she came and talked to me about it. She encouraged me to keep playing and eventually I could play the baritone. Now I play the baritone and tuba. She has also talked me into piano. She is a great teacher.

Mrs. J has inspired me by making me push harder and not let me tell myself that I can't do something but that I can. I play the trumpet, I used to not be able to hit the high notes, but I pushed myself and Mrs. J helped me hit those high notes. She has lots of patience with her students. Her class is filled with joy and laughter everyday I am there.

My teacher is such an amazing person. She is always there for you when you need her and she pushes her students to be the best that they can. Her students look up to her and she is a huge inspiration to her students and the staff here at school as well. We all love having her as a band/music teacher and we love that she sees such amazing things in each and every one of us. She truly is one of the most helpful and caring teachers. Not only is she a teacher she is like a second mom to all of us, pushing us to be better and watching us grow and strive to be a better person!
