Music that Describes Teetee

TeeTee Braxton was nominated by multiple students.

Ms. Braxton changes the lives of her students in many ways. She takes her students and molds them into leaders.

Ms. Braxton is very organized and clean. Her classroom feels like home, and the atmosphere in this room is always fun. No matter what mood you are in, Ms. Braxton will make you laugh. Everyone has a "role," or a job in her classroom, and some students have multiple roles.

"I have four jobs: ELA speaker of the house, interior decorator, supervisor, and ride or die," said one of her nominators. "Ms. Braxton tells us how to do our jobs, and if we get three strikes for not doing them, we get a pink slip. If you get a pink slip, you are fired and you have to sign it. She teaches us to be real-world leaders and employees. In our class, we also have a leadership team. The leadership team consists of all the speakers of the houses, assistants, assistant speaker of the house, assistant supervisor, and supervisor (me). Ms. Braxton also taught us our class motto, PUSH (Persevere Until Something Happens."

"I have never met a person like her.  She makes it her job to inspire, motivate, and challenge her students," said another nominator. "She loves to see the eagarness of her students. I believe she eats, sleep, and think of her students daily.  She is firm, but fair at the same time. I haven't met a student she hasn't reached or inpsired in my 8 years of knowing her.  She is a dynamic and loyal worker. There isn't a job or obstacle in teaching she hasn't acepted the challenged. She is always finding ways to produce and nuture her students. She is an awesome team player and enthusiastic leader."

An excellent teacher sees the natural gifts of her pupils and liberates them. The true leader makes her followers twice the person they were before. oh, what an excellent teacher you are. You inspire, guide, lead, and instill so much in the youth. Things we will never forget and we will always treasure. Thanks for being you and an inspiration to many. #LCOY

You are one of the best teachers I had since I been in elementary school thank you Ms.Braxton

Leriah Maxey Posted 4 months ago

Ms.Braxton is the best teacher, the reason I say that because she takes her time and teach you and she ask questions after it and then if you don't get it she show how you do it again and that's what I like about her she is a life changer and she will get you to the next level.

Thanks for working hard with us and doing your best. Thanks for always showing us love and giving us gifts at Christmas and end of the year. I could not believe a teacher spent her own money and gave each student a gift. That means a lot to me. You are awesome.

Congratulations to my beautiful cousin! I always knew teaching was not only a career choice for you, but a way for you to impact the lives of our future generations. Your caring and charismatic spirit has been a life changer both in and outside of the classroom. I actually enjoyed having you as my teacher during the summer. The only part I didn't like was when you would whip us lol. Not to mention we had an AWESOME lunch lady! Oh how I miss her so..... Baby, she would be so proud of you! Just know that you have been changing lives for a long time now and it never went unnoticed! Thank you for being an inspiration to me and helping me to sort out some difficult things in my life! I love you cousin and cousin the great work. You are a jewel and forever a LIFE CHANGER!

We would like to say we appreciate everything Ms. Braxton for all the hard work she does. She works with the youth after school and on the weekends to help prepare them for programs and other activities. She volunteers of her own time. She doesn’t get paid for all she does. She goes over and beyond the call of duty. Thanks for all the support, guidance, and leadership you have shown with the youth. God Bless You.

Congratulations Ms. Braxton. I hope you win, so you can continue to buy students Christmas presents every year. You always giving and that’s wonderful. I didn’t know a teacher would spend her own money and buy gifts for every student. Not only give with your own money. I remember you telling us to write thank you notes to Donorxhoose when they sent us things we needed for class. You always wanted us to have the best and be the best. Why couldn’t you follow us to 6th grade. I know you need to spread your love to all not just us. I will never forget. Keep doing what you do and God will be proud.

Jax Posted 12 months ago

Ms. Braxton is the best teacher I could ever have. When she tells me it"s going to be alright. It usually is. She's not one of those teachers who has a favorite. She loves all of her children equally. Also she works hard after school with VBMA program. She also tutored after school for 2 years straight.

Hannah Posted 12 months ago

What can I say about this amazing woman. She is my hero. I didn’t think I would make it in school without her constant support and perseverance. She kept at me when I didn’t know how to. She made me want to do better. I am better because of her. She was there for us during school hours and after school hours. I am a great leader now because of her. No longer bad news like everyone thought I was. She is awesome. Never gives up on a kid. We need more of her in our lives. If we had more teachers like her I wouldn’t have started out so bad and confuse.

Sharon Posted 12 months ago

You are very inspiring. I don’t know what I would’ve done without your constant support of me. You always had something wise to say. You always helped me with my anger issues. I remember a time when you help me from getting in a fight. You were always understanding. You treated me low your own child. Wow you are one of a kind. I hope your students know just how great you are. You deserve this honor. You always put your students first. Oh and thanks for coming to my games. Your the first teacher I have had to do that. ????????
