Educator of the Month
The National Education Association’s Read Across America Day is a nationwide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2 – Dr. Seuss’s Birthday. Across the country thousands of schools and libraries participate by bringing together kids, teens and books.
The Board of Education recognizes an educator in our school system who is extremely dedicated and brings a love of reading to her students. She teachers all levels of 7th Grade Language Arts and implements the Guided Reading program with fidelity.
Ms. Jaclyn Lake, of Crofton Middle School.
Jackie as she’s known by her colleagues, is “a kind, patient teacher who never gives up on her students reaching the rigorous stands.” She spends countless hours ensuring every lesson and assignment is differentiated to meet the unique needs of each individual student in her classroom.
Ms. Lake is “one of the most creative and down-to-earth teachers and people. She is so humble in her abilities and is so deserving of this recognition. She is a quiet leader, who’s an integral part of Crofton Middle School. She impacts both fellow staff and students in a lasting way.”
Perhaps this colleague summed it up the best: “Jackie Lake is the type of educator who will spend hours crafting a phenomenal lesson and share it with her colleagues without a word or any expectation of fanfare, or even a thanks. Her humble attitude and tireless dedication are precisely the reason she deserves recognition.”
The Board of Education is honored to recognize Ms. Lake as the Educator of the Month for March 2023. Congratulations!
