YAY JILL VICK! English teacher Jill Vick of Glen Allen HS is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored Jill recently at Glen Allen.

YAYWORTHY— Nominator Laura Matthews said: “She cares about her students in ways beyond just being their teacher! She didn’t hesitate to pick up the phone and call me with concerns while we navigated a pretty scary health issue with my son. Not only did she reassure me as his teacher, but also as a mother. I can’t thank her enough for her kindness!”

Bianca Callahan said: “She’s always encouraging me, and made me feel safe coming to her with anything. She made her class one that I looked forward to going to every day. I brought her a piece of writing that was incredibly personal to me, and she made me feel comfortable enough that I opened up to her about things I was struggling with.”

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