Lora Jenks is a second grade teacher at Mark Twain Elementary School. She was recently honored by the Ohio Lottery as a Teacher of the Month for March 2017.
“Mrs. Jenks is a 2nd grade teacher who leads her students by example. She works with them daily on the curriculum and life skills they will need to be successful in the future. Her work with them goes beyond the classroom and into supporting her students in their personal and extracurricular activities. She teaches them good habits in healthy eating, exercise, mindfulness and meditation, problem-solving and persistence. What really makes her shine is her ability to connect with each of her students and bring out the best in them,” says Amber Cristofaro, a teacher at the school.
For being recognized as a Teacher of the Month, Mrs. Jenks will receive an assortment of Partners in Education merchandise from the Ohio Lottery along with a gift card.
