Music that Describes Juana

Juana Javier was nominated by an anonymous member of her community.

Mrs. Javier is the kind of teacher who brightens up the lives of her students and school each day through her constant smile, exuberance, and positive attitude. Not a day passes by where she doesn't have a kind word and smile for her lucky students, and they look forward to seeing her and spending time learning.  She is a veteran educator who is highly skilled and knowledgeable about current trends in education. She is able to find her students where they are and enthusiastically lead them to do their very best. Her students thrive in her care, and she recognizes them in so many ways which, in turn, causes them to try even harder. It works because her students perform at their best level! 

"Juana Javier is a true believer in educating the whole child. She does everything to provide the critically important nurturing atmosphere while always being the perfect role model and professional presence," said her nominator. "Win or lose---she IS a LifeChanger!"

I know Juana as a parent. She is raising two respectful children which is reflective of what she is as an educator. Kindness, love, fairness and believing that everyone can succeed. Her smile will make every child feel safe and valued. She deserves this award.

The definition of beautiful inside and out. Always willing to listen and be compassionate towards others, putting them first rather than herself.
