The Jeffs’ Best Award was created by the Fairbury Public Schools Board of Education to highlight and celebrate the great work of our staff.
On behalf of the Board of Education, I would like to congratulate Mr. Aaron Leibel, Jr.-Sr. High social studies teacher, as the February recipient of the Jeffs’ Best Award!
Aaron’s students say that he’s a great teacher (even if he is too humble to acknowledge it himself). The common theme in comments from his multiple nominations was that Aaron’s classes are entertaining as well as instructive. “He will always tell stories that go with the topic,” wrote one student, “and it’s so funny.” As its sponsor, Aaron has also led the speech team to several great showings in recent years, and he is growing Fairbury’s own speech invitational by leaps and bounds. What’s next for Aaron? Only he can tell!
Aaron will receive a $25 gift certificate during a short presentation at the February BoE meeting and will be eligible for a drawing for a $100 prize in May! As always, we want to thank everyone for their nominations! The BoE will make a new selection prior to the March meeting.
