Last week Macaroni Kid Snoqualmie Valley-Issaquah honored another local Valley teacher as its teacher of the month – Jennifer Gjurasic.
Mrs. Gjurasic teaches 4th grade at Snoqualmie Elementary School and in April she received not one, but two nomination letters – one from a parent and another from a student in her class.
Here is a little bit from one of the nominations:
Mrs. Gjurasic is fun, energetic and creative, and really engages the kids. The students all love her because she is so dynamic! But really, she works so hard to make sure every kiddo is getting what they need to succeed – more one on one time, a boost of confidence, a quick redirect, whatever! You just know she is one of those teachers you will never forget!
My own daughter, a Mount Si senior, was in Mrs. Gjurasic’s (formerly Ms. Greenough) class when she was brand new to Snoqualmie Elementary School in 2004. We can personally attest to what a great teacher she is, leaving a lasting impression on a young lady getting ready to leave our school district and enter the real life world of college.
Jennifer receives a gift certificate to the Flat Iron Grill and a plaque commemorating her award.
Congratulations, Jennifer and thanks for being such a special teacher!
