Our teachers are amazing, which is why we share the stories of our school’s Teachers of the Year... please help us celebrate Woodstock Elementary School 2019 Teacher of the Year Katie Grooms!
Woodstock Elementary School Teacher of the Year Katie Grooms makes magic happen for the littles in her classroom every day.
But she doesn’t stop there.
“We all feel a natural desire to do things for Katie like cook meals and buy coffee, simply because she strives to make the school a magical place to be,” one colleague said of the six-year teacher. “She deserves this award and many more.”
That magic, another colleague said, is created by Katie’s “contagious energy and positive spirit” shared with students, teachers, staff and parents. She excels in her roles as lead kindergarten teacher, student technology club sponsor, and unofficial technology “go-to” expert for her colleagues. “Her attitude is a blessing to all who cross paths with her,” a fellow teacher said.
In her own words: “Every child is capable of infinite possibilities. Educators have the most wonderful opportunity to influence and guide students into roles in society that they might not have even thought would be possible. Being a teacher is in no way an easy task, but it is by far one of the most rewarding professions.”
