Oakdale Special Education leader named November Teacher of the Month
Jen Borges, Special Education Teacher at Oakdale Elementary, has been named November Teacher of the Month for Westside Community Schools.
Borges is awarded $100, thanks to Nick and Rachel Nun with Nun Real Estate Group at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Ambassador Real Estate.
Borges was nominated by two coworkers, including fellow Oakdale Special Education Teacher Jena Coil, who shared the following:
- “Mrs. Borges works hard before, during, and after duty hours to make sure the needs of the students are met. Not just her students, all students. She challenges students to push themselves and to try new things. With Mrs. Borges, students learn how to cope with the big emotions. They trust her to stick with them through their struggles and to be firm but patient with them as they navigate the ‘tough stuff’. Her depth of knowledge for curriculum and strategies to help all students learn make Mrs. Borges a true asset to any team, school, or district.”
Nun Real Estate Group is one of several local businesses offering support to Westside teachers, helping to make this award possible every month. CLICK HERE for more information about Nick and Rachel Nun with Nun Real Estate Group at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Ambassador Real Estate.
Congratulations, Mrs. Borges, and thank you to Nick and Rachel Nun with Nun Real Estate Group at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Ambassador Real Estate for supporting Westside teachers!
