Jennifer Keller is in her 13th year teaching at Harlem High School. She has always taught German at all levels. Her nominator told us, “Frau Keller is an amazing teacher. She works exceptionally hard to build relationships with her students. She cares not only about their success in her classroom but in all areas of their lives. Her classes are always learning in active ways, using the latest technology, and real world situations.” Keller says, “I treat my students like young adults. I talk about their goals in life, so that I can challenge them and keep them on track to reaching those goals. I never doubt their abilities. I am their biggest fan, and I do everything in my power to help them to see what I already know to be true. Once my students have been taken care of, then I can focus on content.”
