TJHS Recognizes Teacher/Staff Of The Month

Taylorville Junior High is recognizing their February recipients of the teacher of the month and staff of the month for February. Mrs. Jean Ninmer earned the honor of Teacher of the Month.  This is her second recognition as a Teacher of the Month/Red Apple recipient. Mrs. Ninmer is in her last year as the band/choir director at TJHS and she is recognized for her excellence in the field of education. She says that teaching is her calling, "I use teaching to encourage others to join in a common goal and to treat others well." One of her many fond memories occurred when "a struggling student finally played a musical passage beautifully. The whole band applauded spontaneously in a show of encouragement and support!"  


Congratulations to the support staff member of the month at TJHS, Mrs. Tammy Reindl. Mrs. Reindl works collaboratively with the teaching staff to integrate technology with lessons in a meaningful and impactful manner. Her nominator says her ability to find creative ways to enhance learning experiences at TJHS by making them as engaging as possible is her strength. Mrs. Reindl also helps with all of the testing windows, coordinates with student services, and splits her time to serve at Taylorville High School as well. One of her fondest memories occurred when she witnessed the intense reactions as students used the Oculus "VR" to go into space or explore the Titanic. One student even threw the goggles off because he was drifting in space." 


Regional Radio News salutes both Jean and Tammy for their hard work in support of the students and education.
