Jami, though my wife, is my inspiration to teach. She has consistently been able to reach ” that kid”. There is always ” that kid” that is a little tougher to talk to, control, help and keep on task. Every year she gets kids to benchmark and pass the third grade kids that she is told won’t make it. She is able to reach kids that are unreachable, some how and someway. She has the gift to know which one needs the hug, the extra few minutes of private help or a firm reminder on the rules of class. She is what teachers should aspire to be. She is a strong advocate for education at the state level sacrificing time and resources to help affect positive change for education reform, often at risk of personal and professional attack. She fights for education everyday and is in the trenches every way she can be.
