It is not an exaggeration to say that a great teacher can change a student’s life. There are an endless amount of great teacher stories that attest to the benefits of a strong relationship between an educator and pupil. As some of the most influential role models for developing students, teachers are responsible for more than just academic enrichment.
Mrs. Padget has been a teacher for many years and is planning on retiring in two years. She demonstrates an incredible amount of patience, caring, kindness and excellence towards her students, which makes her an amazing teacher.
"By being a strong leader of her community and forging strong relationships, Mrs. Padget is able to make an impact on every aspect of her students’ lives, teaching them important life lessons that will help them succeed beyond standardized tests," Maia said. "Us parents admire her work beyond any words can describe."
