2017 Teacher of the Year

Beverly Connelly
Clifton Park Elementary
1st Grade
18 Years of Experience

 

My favorite thing about teaching is teaching brand new concepts.  I enjoy introducing new skills to students and then witnessing a “light bulb” turn on in their heads!  I love the moment a student visibly “gets it!”  That’s when this students knows the joy of learning and I know the joy of watching the student learn.
