Parade For Jefferson Teacher Of The Year ... On A Scooter

Surprise!

When Jefferson pre-kindergarten teacher Michelle Taylor came out of the front office, she was greeted by the entire school, asked to sit in a scooter and parade in front of the entire school as students and staff cheered her on.

The surprise capped a week-long celebration of Jefferson's 2023-20024 Teacher of the Year, surprising Taylor with something new each day.

Example: One day last week, the entire school staff came dressed in purple but didn't tell her.

For the parade, Taylor got on a ridiculously festive scooter and drove Jefferson Elementary School hallways, driving through a paper sign and laughing all the way.

Union Public Schools will name the District Teacher of the Year tomorrow, Tuesday, February 20, during professional development. Across the district, staff will watch a video highlighting each Site Teacher of the Year before announcing the District Teacher of the Year.

Congratulations to Michelle Taylor for representing the finest at Jefferson Elementary School and Union Public Schools.
