Jennifer Edwards was named the first Teacher of the Year for Meadow Brook Intermediate. Edwards teaches fifth and sixth grade Leadership, Communications and Gifted and Talented (GATE). She's been with Mustang Schools for six years.
Edwards believes teaching is her purpose in life.
“I truly believe it is what God called me to do,” she said.
The idea of teaching as a profession didn’t occur to Edwards until she was in high school. She was heavily involved in DECA, a high school program focuses on business and marketing. She loved her two DECA teachers and thought it would be fun to teach a similar program, an elective where students choose to be in the class.
