A 2nd grade teacher at Pomeroy Elementary School in Chandler is our latest Teacher of the Week recipient.

Ms. Melinda Jones was nominated by her student aid who said Jones “shows endless patience, compassion and genuine care toward her students and all students. She is encouraging, motivating and creates a positive and uplifting environment for her students.”

She went on to say, “It has been a joy to work alongside her and I admire her not only for being an excellent teacher, but for being a wonderful leader, example and coach for her students.”

The weekly winners are entered for a chance to become the Teacher of Year.
