It is an honor to have been named “Teacher of the Year” at Russell O. Brackman Middle School. With all of the incredibly dedicated staff members it is a humbling experience to be given this recognition. Having taught in the same building for 20 years, I have had the privilege of working with some of the most amazing individuals. I have the opportunity to work with the best! It is my belief that all students are capable. It is my job to motivate them and show them just how capable they are. I am so fortunate to be surrounded by staff and students who truly care.
