It is truly an honor to have been selected as this year’s Teacher of the Year for Duncan Elementary School. I am in my second year of working with our dyslexic students and providing reading intervention. Prior to this position, I taught at the 1st, 4th, and 5th grade levels. As my own children begin their educational journey, I get to see teaching from a completely different point of view. I have a new found appreciation for the challenges teachers face in working with students who have different learning approaches; but also a greater joy in seeing my children interact with their teachers and enjoy school. I strive to be the kind of teacher that makes learning both fun and rewarding, allowing my students to reach their fullest potential.
