5th grade educator Jenniper Hylbert nominated for praise by student
After several years of running a business with her husband, a now-teacher at Cross Plains Elementary School discovered her true calling is within the hallways of the school.
At Park Elementary, Jenniper Hylbert feels right at home. This is her place.
"I know that I love this because I think about it all the time," Hylbert said. "I think any teacher will tell you this."
This is Mrs. Hylbert's first year teaching. In fact, teaching is her second career.
Back in the day, Hylbert and her husband owned an ecological computer-based business in Boulder, Colo. But being an educator was always in the back of her mind, she said.
"When we decided to disband [our computer business], both of us thought about teaching," Hylbert said. "I love being a teacher. I really want to do this for a long time."
