Sydney Jensen is an English teacher at Lincoln High School. In October 2019, she gave a TED Talk about shining a light on the emotional impact of teaching students who have experienced trauma. Before the end of the year it accrued over one million views.
According to Sydney, collaborating with fellow teachers and building opportunities for her students to open up in her classroom have been the two biggest factors in her growth as an educator.
Sydney said Lincoln Public Schools provides more professional development than any other district she has ever been exposed to. She commends the LPS district for its unique ability to identify leaders and celebrate success.
