Jeri Faber, 2018 Fellow
Second Grade Teacher
Ringwood School Primary Center | Ringwood, IL
Jeri knows every student has a unique gift and she takes great joy in helping them discover their strengths and talents. She fosters a collaborative, exciting, supportive learning environment in which she helps her students hone their skills and self-confidence. Her goal is to help students make engagement in school a personal priority. She creates ways for students to get involved at the school outside of the classroom, such as assisting students in performing the play The Nutcracker each year. She also helps to host a school-wide variety show for students to showcase their talents. It’s imperative to Jeri that she gets to know every student on a personal level. She takes advantage of using lunch and bus duty time to observe and interact with her students outside of classroom activities, which she believes helps her to understand and connect with them much better inside the classroom. Every day, she works to show her students how they can grow and develop into the best people they can be. As a result of her achievement in the classroom, she also was recognized with the district’s Lighthouse Award.
