Mrs. Smith's students described how she believes in every child and made learning fun for them. "She always encouraged us to do math we thought we could not do. She believed in us. She was right, we could do it," explained one student. Another student described Mrs. Smith as her "favorite teacher" because she made reading fun and "she made me feel smart even though it was sometimes really hard for me."
The Teacher of the Month award will be given monthly during the school year thanks to a partnership between the Stanwood-Camano School District and the local Sterling Savings Bank. Each winner will be recognized in front of the School Board and will receive a $50.00 gift card to Maxime's Restaurant and two movie passes to Stanwood Cinemas.
Brandi will be recognized as the November Teacher of the Month at the November 18, 2008 School Board meeting at 7:00 p.m. in the Stanwood-Camano School District Administration and Resource Center. The public is invited and encouraged to attend.
