Jordan Valley Educators of the Year!

Every educator at Jordan Valley is the Educator of the Year.  But, each year we do honor one teacher and one ESP (Employee Support Professional).

This year our Teacher of the Year is Jana Wright.  This is Jana's third year at Jordan Valley School.  Jana makes a huge difference in the lives of our students.  We are very fortunate to have Jana as one of our amazing teachers at Jordan Valley.

Our ESP of the year is Gary Ren.  Gary may have a rough exterior but he sure has a heart.  He cares so much and works so hard for our students.  With a heart of Gold!!!

Congratulations Jana and Gary!!!
