A helping hand

Kelsey Jeanette takes over special ed program
Olyvia Hoard
With patience comes progress and with Jeanette supporting each student in the room, they are sure to grow.

After spending many years helping kids in foster care and also being a teacher, Kelsey Jeanette has taken over the Department of Special Education in the school. She knew that she wanted to be a teacher because she loved helping kids and her past influenced that decision even more.

 “I wanted to be a special ed teacher because I worked in foster care for kids who had disabilities,” Jeanette said. 

Jeanette had previously worked at Howell High School. However, she bought a new house in Stockbridge. Because of this, she quickly jumped at the opportunity to work in the same town that she now lived in.

Jeanette has had many favorite memories of teaching throughout her years, but one particular moment stuck out to her. 

“During the Howell fair, before they had opened anything up [to the public], they opened a day early so my students with disabilities in a wheelchair were able to access the rides,” Jeannette said. 

One of Jeannette’s main goals is to get more involved with the community. She especially wants to be able to help some of her students who struggle the hardest.

“My favorite part about Mrs. Jeannette is that she takes things easy, she doesn’t go too fast through lessons and she’s a good teacher,” senior Paul Baird said.

Jeannette is already a favorite to many of her students such as senior Dustin Whitney.

“I really like Mrs. Jeannette as a teacher,” Whitney said. “She is really understanding and helpful and she is one of my favorite teachers.”

In her free time, Jeanette enjoys a variety of things such as gardening, crocheting and being involved in the Special Olympics.
