Going the extra mile - Jennifer Temesvary

October 2020 recipient

When COIVD hit us this year, GISD implemented Canvas, an online learning environment, to equitably scale student achievement and enact learning initiatives at every level.  

Jennifer Temesvary, the instructional technology coach at Sachse HS, made it her priority that she would learn this new platform and use her experience to help others. She was nominated for a Going the Extra Mile award by 27 of her colleagues as well as Principal Creel.

Principal Creel says Ms. Temesvary has spent countless hours helping teachers with the start of school.  She has made tutorial videos, click sheets, and has stayed on hold for hours with Canvas help desk in order to provide support for the teachers and families. 

Her colleagues say that she is the Canvas Rock Star and that she goes above and beyond dedicating countless hours, including after hours and weekends, to ensure she has all the answers for the staff.
