Shannon Green was nominated by an anonymous colleague.
"Shannon is the absolute best! She goes above and beyond for each of her students, and her reputation far preceded her before I got to know her and see her in action," said her nominator. "She's concerned about the whole child and demonstrates that daily, without fail!"
Mrs. Green takes extra moments to listen to her children, to hold class meetings to address life's lessons (lessons that won't or can't be taught in a reading or social studies book), and to make each lesson a true learning experience for all. Each year, she establishes such a close-knit, mutual relationship with each of her students. They all know they can depend on Mrs. Green and confide in her, regardless of the issue and regardless of whether they're a current or previous student. Everyone knows and loves Mrs. Green dearly, from the students to the staff members. In her mild-mannered, quiet way, she's always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need.
"Shannon's not only the definition of a LifeChanger in the lives of students, but in the lives of adults, as well," said her colleague.
