24 days ago
The Yucaipa-Calimesa Joint Unified School District was pleased to announce at our beginning of the year kick-off celebration the YCJUSD 2017 Teacher of the Year, Mr. Ken Hall. Ken has worked all of his teaching career in our district. He began at Ridgeview Elementary and then moved to Valley Elementary. For the last nine years, Ken has worked Chapman Heights Elementary teaching Kindergarten. School has always been important to Ken, as a child and as an adult. It is a place to meet new people, make friends, learn so much and share experiences. He has demonstrated his commitment to be a continual learner by building a Professional Learning Network through Voxer, Facebook and Twitter. He connects with colleagues not just in our district but throughout the world with his technology connections. Ken says, “As a teacher, I find success in my students every day and give them feedback to help them grow. I have so much fun teaching, it helps my students to have fun learning.”
As YCJUSD’s Teacher of the Year, Ken moved on to participate in the San Bernardino County Teacher of Year process and was also a County winner. Congratulations to Ken Hall on becoming not just our Teacher of the Year but also one of the County’s Teachers of the Year.
