J. S. - Indiana

Hero: J. S.

Location: Indianapolis,Indiana

Description: Kindergarten Teacher

If you would like to meet an AJAX American hero from Indianapolis, IN, all you need do is walk into the kindergarten class of Jennifer Streit at Spring Mill Elementary School. Bright vivid colors and tangible objects are everywhere to encourage the childrens’ imagination. But teaching the mind isn’t all that Jennifer does, she cares for each child’s soul. I realized her special talent when my youngest son was in her classroom last year. He is your typical bright-eyed boy with an infectious laugh and unending energy. But underneath that smile is a boy who struggles with ADHD. He cannot sit still at a desk. He is constantly in motion and lacks impulse control. A student simply brushing up against him or his desk, disrupts his focus. Despite a classroom size of 24+, Jennifer developed a routine that gave his body the movement it needed all while learning the classroom material. Without her dedication, he would have fallen behind so early in life. I was so impressed with her determination to find what worked with Bennett’s challenges. This year, he’s thriving in his new grade and I attribute much of that success to the solid foundation Jennifer gave to him.

Not only does Jennifer champion at school, but she also gives of her time outside the classroom. At school fundraisers, she one of the first to donate her time by taking children out to buy books or to have a pizza dinner. She actively supports the PTO efforts.

Spring Mill is so lucky to have such a dedicated teacher!
