“Mr. J” – aka longtime Gregory Heights 4th Grade Teacher MikeÂ Janecke – will be retiring, and an event to honor him is set for Wednesday, June 22 at the school.
Janecke has taughtÂ at Gregory HeightsÂ for 13 years, and has been a teacher for over 40 years!
“Mr. Janecke has been a tremendously positive force in his students’ lives,” Lisa Biagi, Gregory Heights Parent, said in a Facebook post. “He is continually patient and attentive and always striving to encourage his students to succeed. My daughter has shared how he has gone above and beyond serving his students with a helpful lesson or even picking up a warm coat for them at the local thrift store.”
Gregory Heights Elementary School is located at 16201 16th Ave SW in Burien.
