This year's nominees exhibit true passion and commitment to their profession and to the students here at JHES.
Coach Riddle has taught both third and fifth grade here and recently became certified to teach Physical Education. Since his career shifted to PE, Coach has been an advocate for the physical education program and strives to provide excellent experiences in order to get students excited about pursuing a healthy, active lifestyle.
If you've ever met Mr. Lacy, you know that, above all, he desires to pass on a love and appreciation for music to our students at JHES. He has sought funds to provide our students with the best music education programs and instruments. Kids love going to his class knowing that he will always have something fun and interactive for them. Many of his students go on to pursue music beyond elementary.
Mrs. Lauren is our PreK-3 teacher. Her students love her and learn through a variety of activities. Her sweet disposition and gentle spirit allows her students to feel safe and loved. Her love of reading is evident by her constantly changing book shelves, keeping everything new and exciting.
And JHES Teacher of the Year is.....Coach Riddle!
