T.J. Warner of Crockett Elementary Named Staff of the Month

  1. Updates

TJ Warner of Crockett Elementary School is Playworks Arizona’s Staff Member of the Month. His dedication to his students shines every day as he strives to build rapport with each one.

As a former Crockett Bear himself, he is a fan favorite out on the playground. You can catch him teaching students how to “train” their hula hoop to become a boomerang or helping out at the jump rope station.

TJ is welcoming to all staff and students. He is a kind, caring, and funny friend to have during recess. He has a positive presence out on the playground for anyone who may need it. Students gravitate toward TJ and he shows them how much he truly cares about them. He takes his time during each recess period to connect with students by asking them about their favorite recess games or their favorite school subject.

Without him, recesses would not be the same. He tries his very best to make recess inclusive, safe, and fun for every single student.

Whoosh clap for TJ Warner!
