HAMPTON — Superintendent Dr. Lois Costa and Marston School Principal Nathan Saddler are pleased to share that third grade teacher Jennifer Gardiner has been selected as a recent winner in the “Dunkin’ Raise a Cup to Teachers” sweepstakes.
Gardiner was awarded $5,000 from Dunkin,’ in December 2020 which will be used at the Marston School to support teachers and the development of curriculum, instruction and assessment. Dunkin’ also gave Gardiner free coffee for a year as part of the recognition.
“Mrs. Gardiner is a phenomenal educator who puts a strong focus and emphasis on creating community with her students by fostering positive relationships and connections,” Principal Saddler said. “She does a great job meeting students where they are academically, behaviorally, and social-emotionally and then differentiating her instruction and approaches to meet each student’s individual needs. Her students perform well and demonstrate solid growth under her guidance.”
This is Gardiner’s second year at Marston School. She previously taught fourth grade for four years at Concord School District.
“I feel so fortunate to have been nominated and selected for this local sweepstakes,” Gardiner said. “Marston School is such a supportive and welcoming community and I’m thrilled to be able to positively impact our school. The students and staff here are nothing short of amazing and deserve an abundance of recognition and praise.”
The Dunkin’ Raise a Cup to Teachers sweepstakes has since concluded, and was organized to recognize the efforts of local educators this school year.
