Tami Rockenbaugh was nominated by her mother-in-law, Teresa Rockenbaugh.
As a fourth-grade teacher, Mrs. Rockenbaugh is compassionate with her students and takes the time to make sure they understand their assignments. She even offers tutoring for students who need a little extra help. Mrs. Rockenbaugh helps with school fundraising functions and always offers unique ideas to make money or improve the school.
"If you ask any single parent whose child has had Tami as a teacher, they would tell you she goes above and beyond her duties," Teresa said. "As my daughter-in-law, she is always willing to help when something comes up' as in the case of my 100 year old father, who just went through two cancer surgeries in less than 3 months. Tami is always willing to go the extra mile to help me with his care. If you contact school personnel, they will agree she is the cream of the crop. Her moral and ethical standards are above school policy, and I feel she is a well-deserving teacher. My daughter-in-law is the teacher that every child should have."
