2017 Teacher of the Year

Carol Cress
Sugar Loaf Elementary
12 Years of Experience


My favorite thing about teaching is connecting my student’s everyday experiences with the learning objectives I am teaching.  I believe once they understand why, they will want to learn more.  Seeing my students grasp the concept of the lesson and collaborating with each other about their experiences on the topic is very rewarding.



Sugar Loaf staff will work with parents and the community to provide a safe and nurturing environment where students entrusted to our care engage in rigorous and authentic learning experiences.


United, we will design student centered processes that will:

  • maximize students' potential
  • develop a passion for life-long learning
  • foster academic excellence as well as emotional and social well being
  • value students' hopes and dreams
  • and inspire a sense of responsible citizenship and service toward others


  • Responsibility
  • Respect
  • Integrity
  • Care
  • Commitment

The Cardinal Creed

We are Sugar Loaf Cardinals.


Cardinals act in such a way that we are proud of ourselves and others are proud of us too.


Cardinals behave in ways that show good manners and self-control.


Cardinals behave respectfully.


Cardinals are lifelong learners.


I am a Cardinal!
