570 News recognizes those who go “Above and Beyond” in Waterloo Region. Every week we will choose someone who has gone “Above and Beyond” in our community. Tell us who you think is deserving of next week’s award by filling out the nomination form.
This week, we shine the spotlight on a Kitchener mother of three who is a supply teacher with the Waterloo Region District School Board, a Sunday school teacher, homework club co-ordinator and leader of a community sharing centre.
Jill Hubick was nominated by her friend, Debbie McMurray, who says among her many accomplishments, Jill helped develop and now trains volunteers for the Strong Start program in the schools. “It helps to build early learning skills for those developing their letters, learning their sounds and that sort of gives them a foundation for future.”
Debbie says one of Jill’s students sums her up best. “She’s a person who lives her life with integrity and she leads by example. I have a direct quote from my daughter, who she has taught for many years as saying that she makes learning fun and she is a great listener.”
