Support Jeanette Leave a comment for Jeanette

Jeanette Fletcher was nominated by her colleague, Samantha Marquardt.

Mrs. Fletcher changes lives and gives all she can to her students. She stays late, goes in early and attends student events and graduation parties for her former students. Mrs. Fletcher writes her students letters and goes to the library on weekends to get books. She advocates for those around her and makes sure that she is always supporting her students. Every student who has had Mrs. Fletcher knows she genuinely cares for them and wants them to succeed. 

"Mrs. Fletcher is a supportive colleague who understands that relationship-building is key for students and colleagues," Marquardt said. "She is kind and is always willing to help. We are all better because of Mrs. Fletcher's kindness and genuine interest in us. She has been a mentor to new teachers, regularly attends professional development opportunities and has been a technology leader in our school. When I think of the term 'LifeChanger,' I think of Jeanette Fletcher. She makes a difference in the lives of her students and colleagues."
