In her own words . . .

“Many students don’t walk into fourth grade loving to write. I love seeing how students grow into readers and writers throughout the year.”

In the words of others . . .

“Jeanette is a master teacher with amazing instincts about how to make the children in her classroom feel successful. The students in Jeanette’s class enjoy and grow from the authentic reading and writing experiences she creates for them.”
- Nancy Lancaster, Interdisciplinary Coach, Nottingham Elementary

“Ms. Choy has a calling in her life, and that calling is teaching. She teaches her students to strive for excellence, to love reading, and to respect each other; and she teaches all of us – her colleagues – to give our best for our students, to wear a smile, to have faith, and to remember that the storms of life can often produce beautiful rainbows and new growth.”-- Sarah Chu, 4th Grade Teacher, Nottingham Elementary
