Math Teacher
Churchill Junior High School in Each Brunswick

Nominated by: Donna Lenahan

Jill Peluzzo is a math teacher at Churchill Junior High School in Each Brunswick, and anyone you ask about her says she arrives at school each day with a smile and positive attitude. Jill believes that a kind word goes a long way, and positive reinforcement with her students is key to a successful teacher/student relationship.

She is dedicated to her students, lessons, and co-workers, and takes the time to master each course she teaches. Her lessons are innovative and passionate, and she constantly freshens up materials to make classes very student centered and technically updated.

Jill happily challenges the highest level students and breaks down lessons so that students are motivated to understand math with the lower levels. Not only does she create great lessons, she shares with her fellow colleagues, and will help by explaining new ways to instruct concepts.

Jill has an extensive knowledge in technology and mathematics, and is fluent is using apps on the computer and smart phone.  She’s an excellent role model and goes above and beyond each day.  Jill likes to attend school functions, and sometimes her three children will tag along.   She makes herself available after the school day has ended for tutoring or parent conferences.

For all of these reasons and more, Jill Peluzzo is now a member of the 2023 Class of Teachers Who Make Magic!
