March - Teacher of the Month
Congratulations to Mrs. Jami Bossart--the D90 Teacher of the Month, sponsored by Todd Stonewater, Edward Jones Financial Advisor!
Mrs. Bossart serves as a Speech Language Pathologist in multiple buildings in District 90. Each day she brings meaningful lessons by promoting social language skills, executive functioning skills and interactions to build positive relationships. Mrs. Bossart began the Comic Book Club at Carriel Jr. High School a few years ago. This is an opportunity for students to meet during their lunch time to play games, discuss comic books or other common interests as they build positive peer relationships.
Mrs. Bossart also had a vision, sought resources and donations and created a top-notch mobile cooking classroom. This allows for her and other staff members to use cooking as a way to build positive relationships among students while teaching basic cooking skills, curriculum content and other life lessons. She has been a vital member of our garden team and often incorporates items from the garden in her cooking lessons. Mrs. Bossart continues to seek opportunities to expand the cooking experiences and is currently working to secure grant funds to incorporate farm-to-table dinners for students and families. Beyond school, Mrs. Bossart is volunteering her time for the second year in a row to help develop and present a study skills class for future O’Fallon Police candidates. Mrs. Bossart shares valuable insight regarding test taking strategies in an effort to help boost the scores on the written police test for candidates. We appreciate Mrs. Bossart's unique approaches, knowledge and passion to help every child be successful. She is a true asset to our school and community.
Thank you to Todd Stonewater, Edward Jones Financial Advisor for his continued support of our staff awards program!
