Today, we bring to you fourth grade teacher Jane Fetterman of Paul V. Fly Elementary in Norristown Area School District as this week’s #TeacherTuesday. She was also featured this morning on FOX 29Good Day Philadelphia.
Jane is the third of four generations of teachers, starting with her grandmother who taught in a one-room schoolhouse. As a child, she loved helping her mom set up the classroom and correct papers, and her favorite activity as a young girl was “playing school” with her sisters and dolls.
After 34 years as a teacher, she is preparing to retire in June. Over the years, this dedicated educator has remained committed to meeting the needs of the children. Jane says, “I have tried to teach my students to care about themselves without hurting others. Everything they do has a consequence which can be good or bad depending on what they choose to do.”
She adds, “They have to learn to accept these consequences and learn!”
What other phenomenal teachers are preparing their students to function in the real world? Let us know and we’ll feature them in an upcoming #TeacherTuesday profile.
