Stephanie Cowart was nominated by her colleague, Kathy Hurley.
Over the years, Ms. Cowart has proven that she has what it takes to be a great teacher. She not only cares for her students, but she teaches them how to become a better student as well. She loves her students and has gone beyond her job requirements to benefit them. Out of her own pocket, Ms. Cowart has bought school materials and clothing items for her students. She gets along with her students, and is a team player with staff as well.
Ms. Cowart is committed to making sure her students are safe and cared for every day. She can be firm in the classroom without making the students feel uncomfortable. Before becoming an educator, she was in the business world, and was expected to have high morals.
"She wants her students to succeed and have high expectations," Hurley said. "Miss Cowart makes a difference at TES, and I can't imagine our school without her."
