Even after 30 years in education - 25 at Jenks Public Schools - Dana Stokes has no desire to slow down. The Jenks Middle School Site Teacher of the Year continues to come back day after day, year after year, for one simple reason.
Thank you to our elected officials, area educators, administrators, and parents for taking the time to participate in the 26th annual Jenks Legislative Luncheon. It is always valuable to have an open dialogue about the issues facing education in our state, and we appreciate all those who seek to improve our schools and better serve our students and teachers.
Thank you Emeka Nnaka for visiting AVID Students at Jenks High School and Jenks Freshman Academy. Loved hearing your message about overcoming challenges and remaining hopeful even in hopeless situations.
Emily Stewart, the Jenks Freshman Academy Site Teacher of the Year, chooses to work with teenagers during their formative years because she loves to see self-discovery take place inside her classroom. She is driven to make the educational process successful for every student by creating confidence, insight, and critical-thinking ability.
