TEACHER OF THE MONTH
Mr. Juraj Gavurnik joined the Middle School faculty in the fall of 2014. During this short period of time, Mr. Gavurnik has developed strong relationships with students. Mr. Gavurnik regularly uses creative assessment strategies as students study the ancient world. Mr. Gavurnik can be found most afternoons after school with large groups of 6th graders either in his room or in the computer lab as they finish projects aligned to his instruction. Mr. Gavurnik greets everyone with a smile, and it is common to hear him say to a student, "It is OK. Come in and we will figure it out." For these reasons, and his dedication to students and the Middle School family, Mr. Gavurnik should be recognized as Teacher of the Month.
