  • It was so exciting to be at Jenna Dean's award ceremony. Jenna is a dedicated, hard-working, organized, teacher, and very well deserving of this award. Thank you Milken Foundation for all you do to recognize teachers across the country. Teachers put their heart and soul into their careers with very little gratitude and recognition, you are giving some a blessing of a lifetime.
