There's a question on a survey that we take every year - "Is there at least one adult on campus that you can trust, and can talk to about anything?"
Mrs. Jelnick is this adult, every single time for anyone who's met her. She never wavers. I have only admiration, respect, and love for this fine, fine model of the education system.

Honestly the best teacher I have ever had. She becomes like a mother to you because she is just so sweet, nice and caring. Your class becomes like your family. I could always look forward to Jelnick's class to make me smile no matter what kind of day I was having. She's so helpful and kind and really knows what she's talking about. My favorite teacher ever :)

Mrs. Jelnick is amazing. Nicest lady on campus. Knows her terminology, grammar, and literature like nobody else. You're lucky if you get her for H Eng 1 or AP Lit.

Mrs.Jelnick is a fabulous teacher! I had her for Honors English 1 my Freshmen year. Boy, does she teach you alot! She's so sweet, and really has a knack for teaching. But trust me, you will never be bored in her class. During office hours she always has a long waiting list for students to come in an

The most poignant lectures and nicest attitude. Wait, I should probably ask her if I used the word "poignant" correctly because she's just really good at what she does. :)
