Scenic Hills Elementary School reading specialist Jennifer is being honored as the Springfield School District's employee of the month for March.
The Delaware County native is a graduate of Cardinal O'Hara High School, University of Delaware and Cabrini College graduate school who has spent her entire career so far in the Springfield School District.
According to an announcement on the district website, Mahoney "meets daily with groups of three to six students in grades two to five who need extra help reading. She sees 25-30 students from each grade level for two or three thirty-minute sessions per week."
The Springfield newlywed was cheered by her co-workers and boss in the announcement.
The faculty at Scenic Hills were quick to recognize Jennifer for her commitment to excellence. Fifth grade teacher Karen Kraycik said, “Jen is an excellent partner to the teachers and she works tirelessly for the benefit of the students. She is always willing to help out or offer a fresh suggestion. She provides assistance without hesitation and always with a smile.” Special education teacher Donna Cubbage-Pollard added, “Jen goes above and beyond to help students read and help teachers teach.
Jen is also the facilitator for the Student Leadership team and gets the students excited about being a leader and role model. Jen picks up everyone’s spirits at Scenic Hills.” David Soslau, principal of Scenic concluded by saying, “As the reading specialist for over 600 children, Jen carries an enormous workload. The amazing results that are accomplished by so many students are inherently tied to Jen’s work. With her efforts, support and caring approach, there is nothing but appreciation and gratitude from the family of Scenic Hills.” For all these reasons and many more, please celebrate Jennifer Mahoney as the Springfield School District March Employee of the Month.
