Jenny Diesbury-Lathrop earned the Teacher of the Year award

By Kirsten Laskey

Teaching seems to be in Jenny Diesbury-Lathrop’s genes. “Since I was a little kid, I played school so I think it was just in me since I was born,” she said.

Diesbury-Lathrop, a fifth-grade teacher at Aspen Elementary School, has stayed true to her educator instincts.  She has taught in the Los Alamos Public Schools for 14 years. For three years, she has worked at Aspen Elementary School. Previously, she taught at Mountain Elementary School.

People seem to be paying attention. Recently, Diesbury-Lathrop earned this year’s Teacher of the Year award.

“I am completely overwhelmed,” she said. “It’s a huge honor. There are many, many, good teachers in this district so to be chosen as the teacher of the year is a huge compliment.”

According to a press release, Diesbury-Lathrop displays many of the qualities of a great teacher.

For instance, she is well-rounded in the craft of teaching, current on educational theories, definitive of a life-long learner, thoughtful and intentional in her lesson planning, respectful of students, parents and colleagues and willing to serve on LAPS committees, especially curriculum writing committees.
