Teacher of the Year: Southside's Junger recognized a third time

"They get in it, see it, touch it ... that is the best way they learn," she said.  

Teaching assistant Pat Odom said Junger's love for her students also makes her a successful teacher.

"She really genuinely cares ... she wants them to progress as far as they can go," she said.

Working with parents also helps, Junger said.

"(Parents) are always supportive; they are always open to any new ideas we may have," she said. "We get a lot (of feedback) too. They will notice things at home that their kids need to work on ... and (we) work on them here."

Junger, Southside’s 2013 Teacher of the Year, has earned the recognition twice before. She accepted this year’s honor on behalf of the faculty and staff.

"There are some awesome teachers at this place," she said. "They put in just as much time and energy as I do."
