Melody Bass was nominated by her colleague, Mackenzie Johnson.
Ms. Bass is a wonderful teacher. This was her first year teaching in an elementary school after teaching high school for nine years. The school she transferred to is a Title I school, and she has really stepped up to improve the school. She volunteered for more things than you can count on both hands. She made all of the kids feel loved, even students from other grades and classes. Ms. Bass even made struggling students want to come to school and do better. She improved her school's referral rate. She was chosen to be the class chair for next year after just one year.
"I could go on and on about how spectacular she is," said Johnson.
