Jayne Hartwig was named the Lee's Summit R-7 School District Learning for Life Award winner for December. She is a fifth-grade teacher at Trailridge Elementary.
The award is presented to one employee each month who is nominated by co-workers and selected by a staff committee.
“Jayne exhibits strong character, empathy and a willingness to work beside someone to help find solutions to problems,” said a colleague. “In addition to co-sponsoring the Trailridge Student Council, she is responsible for bringing the after-school robotics program to Trailridge.”
