Feature Teacher

  • Mrs. Shan McAteer is always smiling and a joy to be around! She is passionate about teaching her students and has a calm demeanor. We are lucky to have her at the Intermediate school!

    Mrs. Susie Benton is the most amazing teammate! Her quick wit, big smile, and positive outlook keep us going on the most challenging days. There's never a dull moment when she is around. We are lucky to have her expertise in reading. Her ability to help students grow and strengthen their skills is unmatched. She always has helpful information and great ideas to share and generously spends her time gathering all the data we need to set the stage for success for our students. Being an encouragement to our RLA team and to her students is probably her biggest strength. We can always count on her to lift up all those around her. An extra special bonus are the yummy snacks she so often supplies! I don't know what we would do without her squirrel-loving energy! We think Mrs. Benton is the best!

    Miss Lacy Bridges is doing a phenomenal job with her GT classes as well as being a team player helping others during times of need! She puts great effort in her classes and with communication. Miss Bridges has a can-do attitude and tackles any challenge that has been handed to her. Way to go Miss Bridges!

    Mrs. Whitney McDonald is an incredibly valuable addition to our RLA team this year! We are absolutely thrilled that she decided to join us. With her extensive years of experience and a multitude of great ideas, she brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to assist our students in their learning journey. Beyond her skills and expertise, Mrs. McDonald is also an absolute joy to be around. Her positive energy is truly contagious and uplifts everyone around her. One of Mrs. McDonald's greatest strengths is her ability to establish meaningful connections with each and every one of her students. She genuinely takes the time to get to know them on a personal level, fostering a strong and important relationship that helps create a positive learning environment. With her dedication to their success, she constantly seeks out ways to help her students reach their highest potential. Mrs. McDonald's commitment to going above and beyond the classroom. She is always willing to lend a helping hand and is often the first to volunteer whenever there is a task that needs to be accomplished. Her willingness to contribute and support others is truly admirable. Perhaps the most inspiring aspect of Mrs. McDonald is the positive effect she has on those around her. Her impact extends far beyond the walls of her classroom, making a difference in our entire school and community. Her passion for education and her students is truly remarkable. Having her on our team is an absolute privilege, and we are grateful for all that she brings to our RLA program this year.

    Mrs. Emily Hill has been teaching for 19 years, and with her experience and knowledge she brings so much to the 6th Grade RLA team. She has a huge passion for helping her students to reach their full potential. Not only is she a wonderful teacher to her students, she is an amazing mentor to other teachers around campus. She loves spending time with her two dogs, Brownie and Brady, as well as spending time with her husband, Mike. She has to have her Dr Peppers and coffee to start her day!

    "I'd like to nominate the power pair of Mrs. Jena Peck and Mrs. Tania Moreno. Both teachers consistently have smiles on their faces. They their students really well and go over and beyond in meeting their needs. When they notice a problem, they both focus on finding a solution. Their attention to detail, incredible work ethics, and positive attitudes are having such a positive impact on our students, campus, and our society's future!"
