Christy Worthy was nominated by an anonymous student.
"Mrs. Worthy is any child's biggest cheerleader. She's always cheering us on at school," said her nominator. "If we're at the rec playing a sport, she is there cheering us on, whether we've been in her class or not. When I moved to the elementary school from the primary school, I was scared of going to a bigger school. Mrs. Worthy was my teacher, but more than that, she was my friend, and she helped me grow academically and socially. She takes fifth graders from throughout the district on a trip to Washington every year. She is awesome when it comes to handling the group of people who go. After I had her for my teacher, I lost my super nana to cancer that summer, and Mrs. Worthy talked to me and helped me get through that loss. Thanks to Mrs. Worthy, I came out of my shell and was not afraid to show others how smart I am. Mrs. Worthy has been the most loving teacher I have ever seen. Thank you, Mrs. Worthy, for molding me into the young man I am becoming. Your words of wisdom will always be the little voice I hear in my ear."
