Monday March 28 a special education teacher at Park High School received a special delivery. Directing Principal Jeff Miller came to Billiejo Majonnier “Mojo’s” classroom armed with a cape and a massive computer monitor marking her admittance to the “Happiness League.”
The Happiness League is a new nationwide initiative by LG to honor America’s teachers for their heroic efforts equipping students with the social and emotional wellness “super” skills needed to persevere and succeed in life. Those happiness skills are gratitude, human connection, positive outlook, purpose, generosity and mindfulness. The Racine Unified School District nominated Mojonnier for personifying these critical skills.
“She has developed a culture within her classroom that is built on these 6 principles. Mojo sees students as students who are talented, compassionate, empathetic, and capable of amazing things,” Miller said, adding that Majonnier works with some of the most at-risk students in the community. ”I am so proud of her.”
Mojonnier is one of just 50 educators nationwide to be inducted as a Superhero Teacher. She
was thankful to receive the honor and quite excited about the cape. It’s unclear whether she has taken it off yet or if it is now part of her permanent work wear.
