CVE's Jennetta Howell named a Most Valuable Teacher for the Fall 2020 Semester
When Cactus Valley Elementary music teacher Jennetta Howell opened up her email from the Denver Broncos, just before school let out for break, she wasn’t expecting much.
She thought it was an acknowledgement of her submission of a video for fan appreciation week. Instead it was notice that she had been selected as an MVT - Most Valuable Teacher - through the Denver Broncos and Delta Dental of Colorado Touchdowns for Teachers program.
“It’s a big deal,” said Howell, who is new to Cactus Valley Elementary, but not new to teaching. “I had been sitting in my office with our kindergarten class that had been transitioned to online learning. It’s hard to keep students engaged in music virtually. When I opened my email, I wanted to cry.”
