I've had the pleasure of working with Trameisha Greer for over 13 years. During my years working with her, I observed and admired her ability to build second language acquisition skills in the students at Collins Elementary. Trameisha has the distinction of having led multiple district level professional development sessions. I've seen Trameisha grow into a confident, knowledgeable, master teacher.

Ms. Greer is a well rounded woman and teacher. I met her over 10 years ago and she has been soaring as an educator on all levels. She has been the teacher of the year and holds the role of a team leader at Collins Elementary. She is a woman of integrity and leads by example. She operates out of excellence and it shows in and out the classroom. She takes the ESL program to a different level. All her students excels in her class and she have them ready for the next grade level. Even when the students are long gone to different grade levels their parents always come back to visit Ms. Greer thanking her on how she helped their children and the foundation started with her. She is definitely deservant of the lifechanger award!!!!!!

Ms. Greer is the high bar we are all held to. Her excellence in teaching and caring for her students is a true sight to be seen and she is absolutely the reason why our Kindergarten team is so strong g. She is so willing to help not only her students but also her colleagues.

When I think of the word Dedicated and what it means to me a few things come to mind. Someone that’s hard working; preparing for a upcoming class or school yr and staying late taking work home once’s it’s over. Loving; taking pride of what they do not only for the money but for the enjoyment of giving back and inspiring others. Caring; taking the time to give attention to those who need it most without neglecting others and their feelings. Motivated; unstoppable constantly looking for the next idea and new way of getting through. Looking for new ways to better themselves. When I take the time to think of these things Ms. Greer is the first person to come to mind. Since the first day we met she has always came with a smile it’s seems like she always talking about her babies and the great things they have learned and also in their own way has reached her. May God continue to bless her and the lives she has touched including mine.

I have known Trameisha her entire life. I has watched her grow academically with great enthusiasm. She speaks of all the great things that she learns from her students which allow her to become a better instructor. Trameisha believes in improving herself through higher education in order to provide her students a wealth of learning. She is extremely motivated and gives more than 100% at all times. The fact that she is able to work with the children with special needs ( Autism) speaks volumes about who she is. Those of us who know her, know that she has made her grandmother (JohnnieMae) smile down from heaven.

Pedagogy is the art of teaching children. It is also synonymous with Miss Greer when you look up the definition for a phenomenal teacher. The word pedagogy itself has a distinct meaning about creating an educational process that will lead to knowledge transfer to a new learner. It is a process that Miss Greer utilizes to create for her students so that they can take a task/subject matter which he/she are trying to learn and gain knowledge to apply to everyday life. She creates an environment to allow her students to search within themselves to tap into their creativity. Her classroom is inviting, positive, and filled with love. She plays a major role in their lives while in the classroom. As a past recipient for Teacher of the Year award, Trameisha understands her role of having first dibs on a child. This is one of many reasons why she makes them believe that individuality of making a difference of becoming a productive member of society. She also ensures that her students can learn efficiently with ease, no judgement, and at their pace. So when you think of a LifeChanger, you think of Miss Greer.
