Ms. Jallow is always 100% scholars in all of the ways! She shows up each day with a smile, prepared to do the work to hold scholars accountable to the high bar we want scholars to meet. On an average day, this means being super prepared with rigorous tasks that are differentiated to meet the needs of every scholar she works with but also into the support she provides around the building. This week especially, Ms. Jallow has demonstrated a great sense of flexibility and a focus on prioritization. Ms. Jallow`s support does not end there; she also makes sure that we are ready for testing by ensuring that WIDA can be completed successfully for scholars. #superhero #platinumteachers #Gr8schools ...
