Melissa Thomas!!! What a trooper for taking on virtual teaching and then having to switch buildings mid-year. You are a rock and a lovely lady. Your dedication and perseverance are inspiring!
Kristi Morris, you lovely lady! Thank you for being such an awesome island teammate and friend. You bring this light with you wherever you are. Your students feel it, and so do the adults! Thank you for the fun and joy you always bring to my day.
Mr. Wise, your kids adore you and love getting to go to your class. Thank you for the little things you do for them, like recognize their individual interests and then use those in their lessons. You are observant and care deeply about your students. You are also such a good sport...like, when you battled a student to see who can plank the longest! It was a close one! Ha!
Mrs. Torbett, thanks for really working your tail off to provide excellent resources, books, and lessons to our kids!
Amy Smith....You. Are. So. Cool. I want to be you when I grow up. Thank you for always going above and beyond for our shared students. They love you and I love that I can send them to you and know that you focus not only on their academic well-being, but their social/emotional well-being, as well. Also, you teach them the importance of sarcasm. Vital life skill!
Rick! You rock! Thanks for always being willing to help!
