Sun Valley Teachers Yvonne Allen and Jeff Reynolds Voted “Most Inspiring” by Sun Valley Students

It is certain that the entire faculty and staff at Sun Valley do the best they can for their students to make sure they get a great education in a safe and nurturing environment. Two teachers that stand out for the students this year as being the Most Inspiring are English teacher Yvonne Allen and Band Director Jeff Reynolds.

According to Ms. Allen, receiving the Most Inspiring is a great honor. She inspires her students by alluding to sports figures as well as other successful role models in her teaching. More importantly, she also believes in never giving up on her students and encouraging them to always do the best that they can.  An important component of her teaching style is letting her students know that she truly cares about them, and because of that, they feel encouraged to do well in the classroom as well as in their lives.

Band Director, Jeff Reynolds, is happy to receive “Most Inspiring” as well. He is honored that students recognize him as being a teacher that makes a positive difference in their lives.

Congrats to both teachers!
