Behavior Assessment and Programming Teacher, TCDSB 

Jen supports the 20 behaviour programs throughout our school board. She consistently goes above and beyond, and meets with students and parents, and takes the time to get to know them personally where this is not her role. She knows and loves those students in a way that I haven’t seen before. Jen supports schools to ensure that these students have the best possible outcomes and she follows the students for years to monitor and celebrate their progress. Most recently, Jen has been dealing with some family struggles that have demanded her attention, yet no one at work would ever know that she carries this load. She does so with a smile, and always inspiring me as her direct supervisor to be better. She is a gem of a human.
