Friday, May 4, an open house was held at Brockbank Elementary honoring two amazing teachers, Mrs. Alexandra Dedrickson and Ms. Kristi Jensen. These two ladies have touched the lives of many children throughout the years and will be greatly missed. We wish them both the best!   

Kristi Jensen - Special Education Teacher,  Resource, Behavior Unit & Self Contained. Kristi has taught at Grant, Larsen & Brockbank. She has 30 years of service in Nebo, 1 year in another District . 

“My teaching career has come full circle. I did my student teaching at Brockbank Elementary at the beginning of my career as a young woman full of hopes and dreams of impacting special education children. I am ending my career at Brockbank having fulfilled my hopes and dreams and have noticed the impact on my students lives. I have been blessed to work with countless co-workers who have encouraged me and inspired me. I have had amazing Principals who have supported and advised me. I have been highly trained by the Special Education Department. I have written and attended thousands of IEP’s. I end my career full of love for educators, para educators, co-workers, bosses/Principals and most of all the children – whom have kept me both sane and insane for the past 31 years.” 

Alexandra Dedrickson- Teacher – Brockbank Elementary 33 years of service in Nebo  

“Thirty three years ago I was hired by Nebo School District to teach 1st grade. Those 33 years have flown by and I realized that during those years I have taught 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th grades along with 9 years in Reading Recovery. I have been privileged to work with the best principals, teachers, students and parents at Brookside and Brockbank Elementary schools. As a teacher who thoroughly enjoyed teaching reading, I find myself closing this chapter in my life and beginning a new series.”

SFJHS AP Human Geography Class is Huge Success!

It’s the end of the school year, and SFJHS’s first ever AP Human Geography class has been a huge success. Students sat for the exam last Friday, but they won’t know their scores until July. One student commented, “I thought the exam was actually really fun. At the beginning of the year, it sounded really scary because I was not sure if I would be able to know everything for the exam, but Ms. Terry is the best teacher and I know everybody else in the class agrees, so, as the year went on, my stress level about the test went down. I hope I did really well, and I feel good about my answers.” Another student said, “The exam was moderately difficult. I think I did well for it being my first AP test!”

What do students learn about human geography? One student said, “I learned a lot of different aspects about how humans interact with their environment around them.” Another student said, “I have always grown up thinking that America was some sort of refuge to the world, and everyone was equal, but over the last year, I’ve learned about the U.S. from a new perspective.” Still another student commented, “There are many more problems going on in the world than we think. Developing countries face many problems to improve their living conditions and to become developed. I learned many new things this year and this class has prepared me for the future!”

Congratulations to this first year of students who willingly spent so much of their time to do well in this class. “Whether I pass or fail, I think I did the best I could have done, so I am going to be happy with my score no matter what.” Best of luck to all you of, AP Human Geography class of 2017-2018.

Today Miss Foster’s class had the choice of building a bridge or a tower in class to see how many pennies it could hold up in a cup. They had to meet the requirements of height and amount of items they could use.  We used an engineering process of trial and error. If the building fails the first time we are able to identify what is wrong and make a change in our design.
