Julie Warmack was nominated by her friend, Trisha Pimenidis.
Ms. Warmack is an exceptional teacher. She gives more than 100% to her students; to her, they are not only students, but family. The motto of Ethel Taylor this year is, "Love is a Game Changer," and Ms. Warmack exemplifies this motto. She gives every student that she teaches the love and respect that she gives her own children. She has three amazing and very different children. One skipped a grade, one has physical and developmental delays, and one is a sports star. This perspective gives her the unique ability to connect with each student at their level. It also allows her to relate to parents better.
Ms. Warmack's skills are not limited to connecting with students and parents. She has an innate ability to teach. It's not just her creativity in lessons, but her ability to readjust, change gears, or alter the lesson to the learner's needs.
"I am always in awe watching her evaluate a situation and access the needs immediately. She is able to pinpoint issues and problems and come up with immediate recommendations," said Pimenidis. "I think Julie is an excellent candidate for Life Changer of the Year, because every day, she is changing lives. She is using love to let her students know that if no one else has told them today, they are loved. They are special. They are enough. She makes sure they are fed, clothed, and nurtured. She is the epitome of a LifeChanger - just ask her students."
