Alison Hamel is
definitely a GREAT educator. When I think of Alison, these words come to mind:
caring, compassionate, kind, dedicated, team player, humble, enthusiastic, and
positive. Alison is the type of educator who constantly thinks about teaching
strategies and her students. She greets each one with a smile and a kind word
each morning. She sets high expectations for all students, noting individual
strengths and weaknesses. She meets her students where they are academically.
Don't let her small stature fool you! The difference she makes is
"larger" than you can imagine.
At PGM, we have adapted
Rita Pierson champion quote. "Every child deserves a champion; an adult
who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and
insists that they become the best they can possibly be." Mrs. Hamel is a
champion for her students as well as the entire Pine Grove Middle staff.
