March G.E.M. Award Recipient


Congratulations to Jared Brazzle March G.E.M. Award Recipient!


Having patience is a necessity when you work in education. It is even more

necessary when educators and technology staff are working together to roll-out

one-to-one technology. The technology team has gone above and beyond to help

teachers work out the glitches. Jared Brazzle has helped our building in so many

ways. He is patient, friendly and hard-working.

Many staff members appreciate Jared’s timely responses to our emails and

technology needs in the classroom. He is willing to help us no matter if it is a minor

or major need. Jared’s attention to detail when figuring out technology issues allows

us to focus on teaching instead of troubleshooting. Without him, this year would

have been much more stressful in working through some of the bugs with 1-1.

When technology doesn’t always work like we want it to, Jared saves the day.

He works to find solutions to the problems we encounter. He is persistent and

continues to check-in on the problem because he is determined to find a solution.

Jared can been seen on what seems to be a daily basis at West. When problems

reoccur or a solution is only temporary he always is kind, helpful and quick to

respond. We are appreciative of how positive and persistent Jared is when it comes

to working with us at West.

Jared continues to support teachers as we explore new ways of incorporating

technology into learning opportunities for students. He meets us where we are and

is genuine when he works to solve our technology problems and answer our

questions. He is patient and works with us to make sure things are how we envision

them to be, and he takes care of the technology piece when needed.

Jared was a key component when it came to a grade level Skype session with

a Civil Rights Veteran. He took care of the technology component-he came in early,

set up the technology and stayed the entire session to make sure things went

smoothly. The teachers were able to focus on the interview and student learning.

There was no stress if something happened with technology because Jared was

there. Jared took time out of his week to make sure that this learning opportunity

was successful.

One teacher shared, “My students and I are especially grateful to Jared

because without him we wouldn’t have been able to take advantage of using the

technology in our classroom to enhance learning. He has made all the difference.”

The teachers at West Elementary appreciate Jared Brazzle and the work that

he does for our district and the patience that he shows Jared goes the extra mile.
