Celebrating at “Legacy Makers: CCSD Teachers of the Year Celebration” are, from left to right, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian V. Hightower, Hasty ES Fine Arts Academy Teacher of the Year Sarah Munroe and Principal Rodney Larrotta.
Our teachers are amazing, which is why we share the story of a school’s Teacher of the Year every week... please help us celebrate Hasty Elementary School Fine Arts Academy 2019 Teacher of the Year Sarah Munroe!
Hasty Elementary School Fine Arts Academy’s Teacher of the Year Sarah Munroe is a writing teacher, so what better praise than in the form of a letter written by one of her second-grade students.
“I think Ms. Munroe should be Teacher of the Year because she is a great teacher. Another reason is she has a room that feels like home. She explains how to write good. Mrs. Munroe makes writing fun. Finally, she deserves to be Teacher of the Year because she helps us write better and loves us.”
That combination of expertise, skill and care comes up again and again in the praise for Ms. Munroe from students, parents and colleagues, who say the 11-year educator makes writing exciting… even for those students who have the greatest challenges to overcome.
“She has created a safe environment for students to become comfortable with the writing process and motivated to become better writers,” a fellow teacher said. “Because of her caring and approachable demeanor, as well as her belief in the students, she has been able to foster a love of writing within her students, which has improved their writing levels and abilities. This is no easy feat when working with students who speak other languages and come from impoverished homes.”
In her own words: “Through relationships, a teacher can build educational foundations that last a lifetime.”
