Today, we want to continue to recognize our amazing faculty and staff. Today's staff member is our head custodian, Melba Basham. Ms. Basham is the one that keeps our building operational. When one walks through the doors of JBE, they immediately encounter a building that is immaculately clean and well cared for. In addition to keeping our school in perfect condition, she is always looking for ways to help improve our school and to show each student the love and support they need. There is truly no better custodian than Melba. Melba, we are truly blessed to have you in our school. Thank you for all that you do to support JBE!
As we continue to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, we want to continue to recognize our amazing faculty and staff. Today, we want to recognize our 4th grade teacher, Ms. Collins. Ms. Collins was one of two Teachers of the Year last year at JBE. Her dedication to her school and students is second to none. Whether it is trying to raise money for the school or trying to help her students reach their goals, Ms. Collins puts in countless hours at JBE and at home. She is able to inspire each of her students to strive for more and be a rock they can depend on at the end of the day. JBE is truly blessed to have Ms. Collins as part of our faculty. Ms. Collins, thank you for all that you do!!
In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, we want to continue to recognize our amazing staff! Today's staff member is Ms. Donna Basham. Ms. Basham is truly our school lunch hero! She comes in and puts her heart and soul into her job. It is obvious in the smile she has on her face during serving times, the way she comes out into the cafeteria to just set and talk with the students, and her constant willingness to go above and beyond to support JBE, that she truly loves JBE and its students. We are more than blessed to have her as our head cook , co-worker, and friend. Ms. Donna, thank you for all that you do to support the students of JBE!!
In honor of Teacher appreciation week, we want to celebrate our staff all month long! Today's faculty member is Ms. Pearl Knott. Ms. Knott is our 3rd grade teacher, and this year's Teacher of The Year at JBE! Ms. Knott worked tirelessly to support each of her students, the mutual love and respect between her and her students cannot be ignored. Under her direction, her students have grown to be some of the strongest learners. JBE and Summers County is truly blessed to have a teacher like Ms. Knott, she is a natural born teacher who never turns down a challenge or chance to help move JBE forward. Ms. Knott, thank you for all that you do to support the students of JBE!
