Jenny Hazen Named Santa Ana Unified School District Certificated Employee of the Month for February 2020

Certificated EOM February 2020


The SAUSD Board of Education this week recognized Jenny Hazen as Certificated Employee of the Month for February 2020. Jenny is a teacher at King Elementary School. 

Adolfo Herrera, principal of King Elementary School, had this to say about Jenny during the February 25, 2020 Board meeting: 

"Good evening Mr. Almendarez, Members of the Board, Members of the Cabinet, Ladies, and Gentlemen:

It is with great pleasure and pride that I present Ms. Jenny Hazen as the February 2020 Certificated Employee of the Month. 

Ms. Hazen will be reaching 20 years of service in the Santa Ana Unified school district this July and what amazing service it has been.  She is the very model of dedication and teamwork. She shows that students are her priority by providing quality instruction to her scholars as well as holding them accountable to being respectful, responsible and ready to learn.  She treats ALL stakeholders with reverence and courtesy, especially during her Individualized Education Plan meetings where she is very skilled at making parents feel comfortable and a part of the team.  Her work record is excellent always meeting deadlines, her attendance is stellar, even helping oversee the WIN attendance recovery program on Saturdays.  Her attitude is always professional to whomever she is working with or for. 

Her loyalty to King elementary school is especially noteworthy, a site where she has been serving since the administration of the very first school site principal.  She always engages positively with our constituency and of course her fellow staff members.  One of her most major accomplishments is thriving as a Special Education teacher for the extent of her career as well as mentoring those new to the field."

Congratulations Jenny!
