Celebrating Our 2024 Teachers of the Year: Oak Grove ES STEAM Academy!

We’re celebrating one of our amazing school 2024 Teacher of the Year honorees each day …  Fourth-grade English language arts and social studies teacher Jessica Cole, a 14-year educator, is the Teacher of the Year for Oak Grove Elementary School STEAM Academy!

“When my son had Ms. Cole his fourth-grade year, he was having an ‘I hate everything about school’ dilemma,” a parent of a former student shared.  “I was beginning to worry that school was something he was going to hate until he finished.  When I found out he had Ms. Cole, I knew he was going to be in great hands because I had heard from other teachers and parents.  The year he had was one of growth and confidence, and for that I am truly grateful.  She worked to constantly build up his confidence in writing and the ideas he had, and tied in what quickly became his favorite subject, social studies, into each assignment.  Ms. Cole saw a spark and helped it continue to grow by putting a piece of her heart in him.”
