BISD Teacher Spotlight of the Week ~ Kim Jurries
Kim Jurries, a first grade teacher at Elisabet Ney Elementary, is the focus of the Brazosport ISD Teacher Spotlight of the week. Mrs. Jurries grew up in BISD and feels that it is a great honor to teach at the same school that she attended kindergarten through fifth grade. She has been teaching for fourteen years. Choosing education as a vocation aligned with her desire to make a change in the world. Her favorite aspect of teaching is building relationships with students and their families by getting to know them, their talents and celebrating their successes. Mrs. Parr, the Ney principal, refers to Mrs. Jurries as a “master teacher” who embodies all of the desired qualities of an educator; she is willing to do all that she can for the students, staff, and district. Mrs. Jurries is one of many great teachers in BISD that inspire students to do more than anyone thought they could! Thank you Mrs. Jurries and all BISD teachers.
