Superintendent Al Cooksey challenged all Jefferson County employees to make a commitment to strive for Tiger P.R.I.D.E (Personal Responsibility in Developing Excellence) as we unite together to move the district forward to a higher standard of excellence. Mr. Key, Principal of Jefferson Elementary School, recognized quickly that fifth grade teacher, Carol Revell, exhibited qualities of excellence in the rapport with her students and classroom instruction. “She is well deserving because we have asked a lot from our teachers this year, and she has complied even with small requests”, explained Mr. Key. Mrs. Revell, a 35-year veteran of the Jefferson Elementary School, is one year away from retirement, yet still strives to stay abreast of new educational technology and provides her students with a quality education. When asked how she felt that Mr. Key was quick to name her for showing Tiger P.R.I.D.E, Mrs. Revell responded, “It’s exciting and makes me want to work harder!” Mrs. Revell’s bulletin board sums up the result of what a positive attitude and drive for personal excellence achieves… Success!
Each week the Jefferson County School District will continue to shine the spotlight on an employee who goes above and beyond to enrich the lives of our students and improve our schools by his/her dedication and commitment to Tiger P.R.I.D.E. Mrs. Revell has certainly set the bar high!
