"I came to Jewell in 2005 thinking it was going to be a brief stopover. Nineteen years later I am still here. The family atmosphere of Jewell School is what has kept me here through the years."

"The bond between teachers and staff is like a family whom you can trust to be there to help problem solve, brainstorm and create instruction that’s engaging and purposeful. It’s a hidden gem that will never be found anywhere else. "

"I like the smallness of knowing all the people at our school. I appreciate the good and the hard times of that smallness. It is a special thing to have people know when you might need a hug or when you might need some space, it feels like family. Oh, and I love having a green house, garden, delicious food, fresh air, forests, and a hiking trail!"
