February 2016 Educator of the Month Winner…

Jaqueline Erickson of Highland Elementary in the Lake Stevens School District

See the Following Nomination...

Jaqueline has been teaching Kindergarten-5th grade special education students for the last 11 years. 

No one cares for her students more than she does; she will routinely come home late and be emotionally exhausted because one of her students had a tough day. The amount of empathy she has is unbelievable. She is the teacher that will have the “difficult” students stay in her room because other teachers are too overwhelmed by them. 

Because she is the resource room teacher, she does not have her student’s all day in her class, she pulls them out for specific groups/subjects. Due to this structure, she has had as many as 45 students on her caseload at one time. 

Every year she spends weeks designing and setting up a new theme in her classroom to try to make it more enjoyable for her students. She has had a movie theatre design, Cars, Dr. Suess and this year she has Never Say NeverLand based on Peter Pan. In her “free” time she started a Rubic’s Cube club for kids to learn and compete solving the cube.

I realize I am biased because she is my wife, but I see how much heart she puts into her kids and I am so proud of the difference she makes. I would love to see her be recognized for all of her hard work.

A Pleasure to Present the Winner with...

A plaque, a great big check to display, and $500 to help defray miscellaneous costs for the classroom.
