Fessler admitted the most exciting thing is to see the excitement of students of all age groups when they show progress and love what they are learning.

"When you work every day with a kid and see the differences that have been made, it is always very rewarding," she said. "It makes my day helping the kids."

Fessler praised the Jersey Parent Teacher Organization and she said she enjoys working with the entire faculty and administration of the Jersey Community School District.

She agreed that almost any teacher in the Jersey District could be honored with the Those Who Excel honor but, like her counterparts, said she was very pleased to receive the honor.
