Each month all staff members have the opportunity to nominate their peers for the School District of Arcadia Stronger Together Award. The purpose of the Stronger Together Award is to recognize employees who serve our district in an exceptional manner by collaborating with staff, inspiring students and engaging families. Congratulations to Anne Martin, 2nd Grade Teacher and recipient of the December Stronger Together Award.
In the building, Anne goes out of her way to make sure everyone feels welcomed and collaborates with all staff to support student growth. The same culture is present in her classroom. She focuses on providing personalized learning and verifies that supports are in place for students. Anne allows her students to have a voice and teaches them to advocate for themselves. She finds unique ways to celebrate milestones with her students which helps build strong relationships with them and their families.
Elementary Principal, Paul Halverson stated, "Mrs. Martin's best attribute is her ability to establish relationships with her students. She rarely has behavioral issues in her classroom. She is firm but fair and is very empathetic with her students!"
The School District of Arcadia is grateful for Anne and thank her for her dedication to our school community.
