Music that Describes Candie
Candie Petersen was nominated by a parent of a student.
"Candie is the most thoughtful teacher. She strives each and every day to make a lasting impression for all students - not just students in her class, but all humans alike," said the nominator. "She is inclusive and supportive of all students, fellow staff, and teachers. Her highly developed organizational skills allow her to focus more intently to develop emotional depth and empathy with students and coworkers. She is open-minded, fun to be around, and has an optimistic ripple effect on everyone she meets. Her dedication and humility are truly one of a kind in changing the atmosphere and trajectory. Her willingness to sit in self-reflection has helped her grow so vastly; I am in awe and aspire to do the same. Her fearlessness is insatiable and contagious. As a parent of a student who has spent countless hours volunteering in many schools, Candie is a gem, and I feel honored to know her. She is truly someone I have the utmost admiration for."
