"Jonathan Moor is a hero to both students and staff," said Aimee Schulte, a teaching colleague at Denny International Middle School. "The year before Jon came to our school, a little more than one-third of eighth-grade math students were meeting state standards on standardized tests. Due to Jon's tireless work, more than 80 percent of students met or exceeded standards this past spring. He has even designed and created his own material in response to students who were struggling to learn with some of the provided curricula, effectively addressing the diverse learning needs of our student population. Jon's energy in the classroom creates a positive and fun environment for students to learn and reach their full potential."

"Kjell Mattson - known as 'Senor' Mattson' - teaches math, social studies and literacy (all in Spanish) to our children. He is enthusiastic and engaged with the students and keeps them excited about the subject matter," said Lisa Wada, the parent of a Puesta del Sol Elementary School student. "During the Native American class module, Senor Mattson had students create small 'families' of Native peoples. After choosing an identity, a Native American name and a role in the tribe, each child worked with their group to establish unity."
