Issue Date: October 21, 2020
Mrs. Jean Zimmerman of Faith Christian School in Coleman is the 2020 Teacher of the Year.
Zimmerman graduated from Pillsbury Baptist Bible College in 1968 and has taught for over 40 years. She completed her bachelor's degree in just three years, and is currently pursuing a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Development. She's received dozens of accolades for both her accomplishments and her students.
She's taught Kindergarten, Special Education (Talent Development) for 2-12 grade, music, English, and Speech. This is all done with a pursuit for excellence so that her work glorifies God, and that effort impacts her students' view of excellence for the rest of their lives.
Zimmerman is a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and teacher. She is a positive example to the female students of what it looks like to be a strong, faithful, and Godly woman. She loves teaching, and approaches each day prepared, poised, and with professionalism.
Although she loves teaching, we know she loves her students more. She cares deeply for each of them. She takes extra time to get to know them personally and to pray for them specifically. She encourages them to know and to love the truth of God's Word, and Faith Christian is blessed to have her as a partner in the ministry of Faith Christian School.
