Janet Boorujy is Sunol's top teacher!
Submitted By Molleen Barnes, Superintendent
Caring, dedicated and tenacious are just three words that come to mind when thinking of the high quality of instruction provided by Janet Boorujy. Indeed, Janet has provided Special Education Instruction to children for the past nine years; four of which have been spent at Sunol Glen School whereby students have been the recipients of her talents and skills. She is truly amazing and her commitment to children is second to none.
As testimony to her dedication, even at the meeting at which she was named Teacher of the Year, she sought me out after the meeting with a sense of urgency. I thought she wanted to come up and say something about being the recipient, but no, she wanted to discuss one of our students. So ingrained in her very being is her relentless pursuit of finding what is best for each and every student; she cannot be 'distracted' by things such as awards and recognitions; she's got work to do!
The staff turns to her regularly (and constantly) to discuss any ideas she may have about how to best meet an individual student's needs. She is a wealth of knowledge and has strategies and ideas readily shared with her colleagues to ensure success for every student. Janet even follows the progress of students after they have moved on to high schools in other districts. Parents, students and staff respect and admire her. She embodies all of the qualities necessary to be an exemplary and amazing teacher and truly deserves to be Sunol Glen's Teacher of the Year.
