News Briefs: Teacher Honored, J2M2 Applications Available

Jobe Named Teacher of the Year

MERCER ISLAND, WA (June 12, 2014) — Sue Jobe, a member of Kent Covenant Church, was one of three people the Mercer Island School District honored as Teachers of the Year.

Jobe is a special education instructor at Mercer Island High School. Colleagues nominated her.

John Hartman, a parent of one of Jobe’s students, wrote: “Our daughter Raechelle was a student in Sue’s class through high school. The positive impact that Sue had on Raechelle as a student and as a person will provide lifelong benefits. Having known Sue for a number of years I have taken to referring to her as ‘Saint Sue.’ Her empathy and care for others is at her core and extends well beyond the classroom. No task [is] too big or too small for Sue to take on to help others. Sue may have been one of the original 24/7 people as she always makes time and attention available to keep everything moving forward. We would like to congratulate Saint Sue for some well-deserved recognition and heartfelt thanks for being such a great teacher, person, and role model to all.”

She is married to one of Kent Covenant’s pastors, David Jobe.
