YAY JIMMY MILCAREK! Jimmy Milcarek of Short Pump Middle School is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored James recently at Short Pump Middle School.

YAYWORTHY— Jimmy was nominated three times.

Nominator Saanvi Gourishetty said: “He is the most understanding teacher I have ever had. He always looks out for every one of his students. He starts the day with positivity and hope for the entire class. I have never had such a great way to start the day before I had him. He deserves every second of appreciation he gets. His stories are so inspiring and they teach students so much. I have learned some of the most valuable lessons from this teacher. Thank you Jimmy Milcarek for everything you do — you are an amazing teacher and I hope this message finds you well!”

Catherine Wagner said: “He delivers pizza to a student every Friday! It made my son’s day!”

Kelsey Boughton said: “He is an amazing advisory teacher, and makes each day fun. He’s funny (especially when using his funny voices). Every day he gives us a pep talk, telling us we need to take charge of our futures and that we can do what we want by acting now.”

Thank you for all you do, Jimmy, to make a positive difference and move HCPS forward!
