A Note From the 2014-2015 Teacher of the Year
I have the best job in the world; I AM A TEACHER! For the past thirty-seven years I have enjoyed sharing my passion for learning with my students, parents and fellow educators. As teachers it is easy to forget the global impact that we have on the minds we teach each day. All other professions begin in our classrooms, and what we do each day ultimately has an impact on the future successes of our students, schools, and the communities with which we teach. Three years ago I chose to teach at Melrose Elementary with students that needed me the most, or so I thought. Little did I know it was I who needed them, and have learned that it takes a village to develop a teacher! I am the teacher I am today because of the many students, parents, teachers, and administrators who have touched my life and my heart.
Congratulations to our Teacher of the Year Finalists!
