Corey Jensen knows the importance of being prepared, and it’s earned him a bit of a reputation at Eastmont Middle. He’s known as one of the first teachers to arrive at school each day and the last one to leave the building at night. He spends a majority of that time responding to the individual needs of his students and getting ready to be the best he can be. Students flock to Jensen’s room because he is kind and understanding, and his enthusiasm every day is infectious. Fellow teachers are grateful for his flexibility and willingness to help however he can, and Eastmont Middle is honored to select Jensen as the 2018 Teacher of the Year.
