NEWS & NOTES
2023 Regional Teacher of the Year
A note from Jeff Lunt, Principal at Franklin: In two words, the reason why Jennifer Proiette was nominated for Teacher of the Year is that “she rocks!”
Mrs. Proiette was nominated by a former student’s parent, who realized the amount of time, energy, and love Mrs. Proiette puts into her class and students’ lives. She knows how to get the most out of her students to assist them in reaching their potential. Anyone who has seen Mrs. Proiette teach recognizes that she is a whirlwind of enthusiasm and “quiet” is probably the last word to describe her, but as a leader, she is just that. She quietly leads and sets an example for others.
As a teammate, she is always there for her kindergarten teaching team. She looks for ways to improve her practice and constantly communicates with her team about what is working and what can be improved. As a result, the kindergarten team is continually refining and coming up with new and innovative ways to meet the needs of students.
Mrs. Proiette is extremely humble, and recognition is probably the last thing she wants, but she is extremely deserving to be chosen as the Washington State OESD 114 Regional Teacher of the Year.
