Support Brittani Leave a comment

Brittani Smith was nominated by a friend.

"Brittani is a long-term sub, but she works as hard as any certified, veteran teacher," said the nominator. "She goes above and beyond her position to give her students the best, even if it means staying late, attending additional meetings or trainings, or missing out on extra pay or stipends she'd otherwise receive for her hard work. She never stops trying to learn and improve and handles the job's demands like a champ. Her reliability, integrity, and positive attitude make Brittani a pleasure to work with. She's always there to support her team and cheer them on."

"Above all, she is loyal and has been a valued member of our school since she was once a student there herself. Brittani is a LifeChanger because she is a role model for her students and colleagues, and her dedication to her position sets an example for what it means to have a great work ethic," said the nominator.

Mrs. Smith is passionate about the work she does! Any student that walks through her door is welcomed and treated as her own. She is dedicated and will spend countless hours before and after school making sure that she is prepared to teach her students. This is a rare quality found in long-term substitutes. She cares for her students and has really taken the time to build relationships with her students. Mrs. Smith has created a fun and engaging environment for students and staff alike. She brings a positive attitude to work everyday and is a fantastic team player. It has truly been a privilege to work with her this year. Mrs. Smith is truly inspiring!
