Congratulations to Sunset Lane’s 2020-2021 Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Jessica Humes!
Mrs. Humes is loved and admired by all. Her helpful nature and kind and giving demeanor have earned the respect of her colleagues and all Sunset Lane staff. She goes above and beyond to advocate for students and cheer them on at assemblies, plays, school events, and more. Not only is she a cheerleader for students, but she is also a cheerleader for staff, always offering a helping hand and her ongoing support. As the RtI teacher at Sunset Lane, she routinely attends grade level meetings, collaborating with teachers to discuss the implementation of strategies that will help meet the needs of all students.
Mrs. Humes models what it means to be life-long learner. She is reflective in her practice and is always looking for ways to continue growing as an instructional leader. She creatively engages students in learning and encourages them to play an active role in their education, while supporting them every step of the way. Students feel safe to take academic risks when they are working with Mrs. Humes. Mrs. Humes also makes sure that all student needs are met, she implements ongoing assessments to guide her instruction, and she ensures that her interventions are effective. She has proven to be invaluable in supporting our students and leading them to academic gains and growth. There is no doubt that Mrs. Humes is invested in our school and the success of all students.
How lucky are we that we get to have Mrs. Humes as a part of our Seahawk family?! Thank you Mrs. Humes for helping us learn and grow. We love you! Another big round of applause to Mrs. Jessica Humes, Sunset Lane’s 2020-2021 Teacher of the Year.
