Today’s #daiLEEclassroom is Mrs. Newsome's Classroom! Mrs. Newsome was one of our Teacher of the Year finalists. She teaches 7th grade Math courses and she’s been teaching for 7 years. “ I value building relationships, and making connections with my students so that they know I care about them and want the best for them in my class and beyond. Every student needs a person to cheer them on, love them, and encourage them. I pray that I can be that person for my students.” - Chambliss Newsome Congratulations, Mrs. Newsome, you’re our #daiLEEclassroom #GoodNewsLEE
Today’s #daiLEEclassroom is Mr. Millsapp's Classroom! Mr. Millsapp was one of our Teacher of the Year finalists. He teaches 11th grade English courses and he’s been teaching for 13 years. “While I am enthusiastic about sharing my passion for the content of my courses, I also really enjoy making meaningful connections with my students. Helping students have a sense of belonging in the classroom is always my first priority – so without it, in my opinion, authentic, long-lasting learning cannot occur.” - Jason Millsapp Congratulations, Mr. Millsapp, you’re our #daiLEEclassroom #GoodNewsLEE
Our #daiLEEclassroom is Mrs. Ward's Classroom! Mrs. Ward was just named our System Teacher of the Year . She teaches 5th grade math, science, and social studies at Twin Oaks Elementary. She's been teaching for 8 years. " As a teacher, I have the privilege of guiding and shaping young minds, helping them discover their passions, talents, and abilities that some students don't even know are there. I want my students to be confident in themselves both academically and socially. I want them to learn to advocate for themselves, because who else is going to speak up for them? Teaching is not just a profession; it is a calling that allows me to make a lasting impact on the lives of my students, equipping them with the tools to succeed and make a positive difference in the world. It is through teaching that I find purpose, fulfillment, and the opportunity to contribute to a brighter future." - Casie Ward Congratulations on being our very first #daiLEEclassroom for Classroom of the Day.
