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 Liberty Elementary School 2019 Teacher of the Year Angie Nalls!
Liberty Elementary School is renowned for its emphasis on service learning and promoting kindness, resulting in the achievement of National School of Character status.
And according to parents, fellow educators and her current and past administrators alike, first-grade teacher Angie Nalls is an amazing example of excellent character, which she models daily in her classroom.
“She recognizes the good in each and every one of the students who pass through her classroom door, and her students can feel that acceptance,” said a colleague, whose daughter also was a student of Ms. Nalls. “Now a fourth-grader, she still talks about the activities she did in first grade and the special days they celebrated together. She is the teacher that students remember, and other teachers aspire to be.”
A 21-year educator, Ms. Nalls has taught for the last nine years at Liberty, where she has been a leader in developing service-learning projects and engagement efforts, such as the establishment of an annual Grandparents’ Day celebration.
In her own words: “I hope that in doing service-learning projects each year, students learn to intrinsically think of others, help those around them in a tangible manner on a regular basis, and receive the positive feeling that comes when they have helped their community and others in a special way.”
