Congratulations to our District Teacher of the Year!

District Teacher of the Year


Congratulations to Mrs. Whitney Jones, 2nd-grade teacher at Wildlight Elementary, for being selected as the 2020-2021 Nassau County Teacher of the Year! She has been teaching for seven years. Mrs. Jones described her teaching philosophy by stating, "I became an educator to make a difference and help my students develop a desire to learn. It is humbling to watch students grow and succeed! I also strive to build relationships with my students and provide a positive environment. I find that no matter who the student is or what their life is like outside of school, they will work hard when they are shown love and respect!"
