Pulaski County Public Schools and Riverlawn Elementary School are pleased to recognize Grace Jennings as Teacher of the Month. Grace is a Kindergarten teacher at Riverlawn Elementary. Riverlawn Elementary was blessed to have Mrs. Jennings as a blocking student and student teacher. After she graduated Radford University, Riverlawn was fortunate enough to offer her a teaching position. Mrs. Jennings has been a part of Riverlawn Elementary for six years. She has had a variety of teaching experiences in several different grades. However, Kindergarten seems to be where her heart is. When you walk by her room, you will see her sitting on the floor with a group of students engaged in a fun activity. She has done everything from raising butterflies and chicks, to having students spend the day using glow sticks while working. Every morning, Mrs. Jennings has a line of former students waiting at her classroom door to give her hugs for the day. Along with colleague and parent nominations, Mrs. Jennings had several student nominations. One student stated, "Mrs. Jennings is a hard-working teacher. She’s really kind and fun.” Another student feels Mrs. Jennings “is a wonderful teacher and loves that she rewards her students with really cool stickers.” A parent stated, “Mrs. Jennings pours her heart and soul into teaching. I could definitely tell it when my child cried because it was time for her to move onto her next grade.”
