2017-2018 Teacher of the Year

Meredith Stephenson

One of my favorite TED talks is by Rita Pearson, "Every Kid Needs a Champion." In her TED talk she says "Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connections and insists that they become the best they can possibly be." I strive to be a champion for my students each day, I truly believe in the power of encouragement and connections in the classroom. Each year I strive to make meaningful relationships with each of my students, but I also push them to see their potential academically and socially; helping them to reach those goals through out the year. I care for all my students and let them know how truly awesome and unique each of them are at every opportunity I have.
