Christin Bradshaw was nominated by a colleague, Laura Terry.
"I believe that Christin Bradshaw should be nominated for the LifeChanger of the Year Award because of her devotion to teaching, passion for her students, and her expectations for the best from each child," said Terry. "She goes above and beyond to push for academic achievement from all her students, and she continually incorporates school initiatives into her teaching. She is a believer that all students are capable of learning, and she accepts the challenge enthusiastically. Through this belief, she has created a student-centered classroom environment where active learning occurs."
Miss Bradshaw incorporates fun-filled, hands-on experiments to make learning relevant for her students. As an inclusion teacher, she differentiates lessons, assignments, and assessments for success from all.
Miss Bradshaw treats all students equally; she is consistent and fair in her classroom and adheres to the highest moral and ethical standards. She gives everyone her best.
Miss Bradshaw shows commitment to building a nurturing environment that lets her students know of her love and care. It's a pleasure to watch her students grow.
She goes beyond the academic day to coach the school's dance team, Science Olympiad team, and Robotics club, and she supports the gifted class in their extra endeavors within the classroom. Even as a co-leader of these activities, she shows her commitment to the students and ability to work with various professionals. She is a role model for teaching and leading, and she positively impacts the lives of her students. Beyond those activities, she tutors after school and teaches the summer remediation program.
With her colleagues, she is a member of the math team, the Jones County Cognia Team, and the Family Engagement Team. Finally, to ensure a positive behavior culture within the school, she is also the PBIS/Culture and Climate school lead, leading other professionals to make decisions, effect change, and create a positive culture for teaching and learning.
"Personally, I have had the pleasure of having Christin Bradshaw teach both of my boys in 3rd grade, and my youngest had the opportunity to loop up with her in 4th grade as well," said Terry. "She made such a positive impact on their academic lives in both our boys. A parent could not ask more out of a teacher, as she encouraged a love for school and learning in each child."
"Professionally, as a teacher myself, having been aware of Miss Bradshaw's teaching style and activities, I have tried to model my teaching activities after her. The love her students show her is something all teachers should want, and the engagement she maintains is astounding. I desire to be as influential with my students as Miss Bradshaw has been with hers," said Terry. "These are the reasons why I have chosen to nominate Miss Christin Bradshaw for the 2023 – 2024 LifeChanger of the Year Award."
