Sycamore Ridge Classified Employee of the Year
Sycamore Ridge School is pleased to announce Jennifer Good as our classified employee of the year! Jennifer joined the Sycamore Ridge family in August 2013 as our Library Media specialist. Since her arrival, our school library has become a student-friendly environment with book organization and displays that encourage student independence. Mrs. Good does an amazing job working with individual students to help them find books that are “just right” and of high interest to the student. Jennifer is a proactive initiator that develops and creates learning experiences for students that peak their natural curiosity while requiring them to think critically and creatively.
.Jennifer’s knowledge and skill with internet research greatly benefits students. While in the library, students frequently engage in thought-provoking inquiry-based lessons using their Chromebooks as a tool to support their learning. During the 15-16 school year, Jennifer worked closely with the San Diego County library system to implement a school-wide program that resulted in all students obtaining public library cards, which in turn, gave them access to high quality digital media and books at home and school.
Jennifer is an outstanding colleague. She works collaboratively with classroom teachers in identifying and gathering resources to support the curriculum.
Jennifer has a working knowledge of all students and meets their social and emotional needs whether on the playground or in the library. Students on campus also know Jennifer as “Mrs. Good” a kind, caring adult that helps them be safe during lunch and on the playground.
