Congratulations to Mrs. Jennifer Collina, 3rd Grade Teacher at Steckel Elementary School in Whitehall. Mrs. Collina is our B104 Teacher Salute Winner for the Month of April! Mrs. Collina was nominated by parent: Heather Hechler and her daughter Alexis.
What Heather said about Mrs. Collina - "My family was new to the district this year. My daughter in 3rd grade was struggling and was feeling anger toward school and not doing well, and I could see her struggling. Mrs. Collina noticed this as well and would reach out to me. Mrs. Collina made arrangements in her class to assist my child as needed. On a daily basis, she would contact me by email or note home on how my child did in class. She responded very quick to my daughters needs and listened to my requests to look into help for my daughter. My daughter was evaluated and placed into a different class so she would have more of a one-on-one education to help her better. Since then my daughter has improved greatly and loves school now that she understands things on her level. Mrs. Collina continues to reach out to me to check on my daughter and to see her improvements. Mrs. Collina is an amazing teacher with a passion for teaching, and someone my family will always look up to for caring about her students and putting all her love into teacher. Mrs. Collina has shown me her true love and passion for teaching, and my daughter still looks for her every day to tell her how much she loves school now! Mrs. Collina will always have a place in my heart for possibly changing my daughter’s life and being such a positive role model for her."
