Jonna Kuskey wins Teacher Achievement Award


John Marshall High School English teacher Jonna Kuskey was among four teachers in the Northern Panhandle to receive a 2018 Arch Coal Teacher Achievement Award. 

Kuskey has been a teacher at John Marshall for 12 years and taught as an adjunct professor in psychology and sociology at Belmont Technical College for several years before that. 

She says being a teacher is the most fun and rewarding job she has ever had.

“Watching a student who really wants to learn and is constantly trying to do better, and being able to help them do that, is so rewarding because then they have a stronger sense of who they are and a stronger sense of their abilities and they recognize that they can overcome challenges with some persistence,” said Kuskey. 

Kuskey received a plaque and $3,500 to put toward classroom supplies. 

She says she feels humbled and believes she works with some of the best teachers in the country.
