As a teacher leader, she has more than earned the respect of all those around her. Nothing is beyond her! Whether it's unpacking standards, mentoring new and struggling teachers, preparing the school for yet another Title I monitoring visit, or planning for benchmark or standardized testing, she simply never says "no"! She’s gracious, responsible, enthusiastic, she has a great attitude, and is the consummate team-player. She is more worthy of this award than most.
