Please join us in recognizing Ms. Keyona Watkins as our 2019-20 Rookie Teacher of the Year!  As a teacher at JES this year, she has exhibited the passion and commitment from her time as a student teacher to her time as a first year teacher.  She has been a team player and is always willing to learn and try new things. She wants to do what is best for her students and families.  She works well with staff through positive interactions of listening to best practices and guidelines and always is willing to participate by offering her experience and best practices as well.  Ms. Watkins proves that with any bad thing that happens (COVID-19 pandemic), there is always something bigger and better and that is her first year and potential moving forward!  The future is bright for Ms. Watkins and our JES family.
