G.R.E.A.T. Award - Alison Hamel

posted Dec 16, 2015, 12:56 PM by LAVERNE ROME
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.
