Caldwell’s Teacher of the Year 2017 – Jennifer Roberts!

Miss Roberts is a 5th grade language arts teacher that has a remarkable gift when communicating with her students. She consciously creates highly effective lessons that keeps her students engaged and promote grade level mastery.

At the beginning of the year, she calls each of her parents to let them know how happy she is to have their child in her classroom. She communicates with parents when things are going well in the classroom and she calls when there is a need. Her desire is to communicate proactively with parents so they can work together to meet the needs of each student.

Miss Roberts communicates with her peers in a collaborative manner. As our lead ELA teacher, she plans with her other grade level ELA teachers. However this year, she has gone beyond her grade level and collaboratively plans with our two new fourth grade ELA teachers. She assists them with unpacking standards, creating lesson plans, developing formative assessments and creating small group lesson plans. She has been a true asset to the new teachers.

We are truly blessed to serve with this amazing educator. She continually looks for creative ways to communicate with her students. Parents love hearing from her! Our teachers are supported by her with collaborative planning. This teacher knows the power of effective communication.

 

Caldwell School Related Employee of the Year 2017 – Lindsey Letchworth

Even though she has been with us for less than ten months, she has had a powerful impact on our students and staff.  Each day she meets the instructional needs of student in small groups. She is hard working and committed to both the students and the teachers.

We truly appreciate how Miss Lecthworth supports our school wide programs and initiatives. You can always find her volunteering at family night and school related functions. Supporting the community is important to our school, but it is also important to her. She always joins us when were go out in to the community to serve! Service is at the heart of what she does.
