Teacher of the Year!Published by lyndsee.brice on Thu, 04/14/2016 - 15:36
The faculty of Cherry Creek nominated Amy Braithwaite, first grade teacher, as their choice for Teacher of the Year 2016. She was honored at Nebo Board Meeting on April 13.
Mrs. Braithwaite has taught first grade at Grant and Cherry Creek schools for sixteen years.
She is highly recommended to observe during focused observation by instructional coaches and intern coordinators. Her students are well managed and loved as they launch into reading success.
Upon learning about Mrs. Braithwaite's honor, one of her first grade colleagues said:
"Amy always has a smile on her face and I love being around her. She is also approachable and I can ask her any question, any time of the day and I always receive helpful answers. Some days I just want to pick her brain and steal everything she does as a teacher !:). She is a talented, patient, and positive teacher, who I really admire, not only as a teacher, but as a person as well. I'm grateful I am on the same team as her because she has helped show me the ropes this year.
Congratulations, Mrs. Braithwaite. This honor is well deserved!!
