I honestly don’t know where to start when it comes to Mrs. Schultz, she is just so amazing. I definitely got off on the wrong foot with her the first time I met her and at first she was just the corny cat lady who seemed desperate to give me candy over every good action made. She was the first to close my tabs when I was doing anything but my work, the first to notice and lecture me when I was late to a class but most importantly the first person to help me. That’s when I learned she was not only an amazing teacher but a genuinely amazing person and overtime became an amazing friend on top of those things. She helped me break some very bad habits, helped me get better at being on time to all my classes and all and all brought a lot more happiness to my life and I can guarantee you she can make me smile on my worst days and do my work as well. She is always kind to everyone and gives anyone chances to grow as a person and as a learner. Mrs. Schultz is the most driven person I have ever met, she works so much harder than she has to so we can be good people now and even better people when we grow up. She has an amazing personality, the best jokes and of course the best snacks. I don't know where I would be without Mrs. schultz and if anyone deserves this award it is 100% her.

Liz has been an integral part of daughter’s education team. Liz has a special way of drawing her in, engaging with her and supporting her. As she worked with Liz our daughter’s confidence increased as did her interest in succeeding in school. We feel very fortunate to have connected with Liz.

What a great Choice! Elizabeth is one of the hardest working special educators that I’ve ever worked for. She is devoted to the kids and their needs and at the same time looking out for her coworkers. Elizabeth is a huge asset to our school.
