More dedicated, more kind, and more unruffled than you can imagine. After being in the same classroom, same grade, and same school for over 40 years, she knows 6 and 7-year-olds very well! She is an amazing reading teacher. Consistently, almost all of her students reach benchmark by the end of the year. She has a way of getting her students to not just read, but to love reading! Her class is the top reading class for number of books read in the library year after year. She has loved and nurtured some of the most energetic students that have gone through our school. She has been, and continues to be, a mentor and friend to teachers both new and old. With a warm smile, a contagious laugh over 1st grade classroom antics, and a loving heart, Janet Morwood has been a blessing to hundreds of 1st grade students these past 40 years. Here’s to “more” yet to come.
