Congratulations to our 2019-2020 Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Sandra Robinson, 8th-Grade Social Studies!

Sandra's nominating teachers had this to say about her:

"I have never met someone who teaches and loves students with such authority and grace. She invests countless hours into making her content accessible to all students and is such an inspiring woman to work with."

"She empower students within her classroom, inspiring them to continue to push themselves outside of the class to become better citizens. She takes time to make all of her lessons meaningful and gets through to students from all races, ethnicities, and economic statuses."

"She strives to build trusting relationships with students in order to create a safe, positive, and productive learning environment. Mrs. Robinson values collaboration and willingly shares best practices."

We are so proud of you, Mrs. Robinson!

Congratulations to our 2019-2020 Employee of the Year, Mrs. Jeanne Crain, Bookkeeper!

Her nominating teachers had this to say about her:

"Jeanne is always helpful, a great problem solver, and a person of integrity and trustworthiness."

"When we have budget constraints, she works with outside community members to help get items donated for teachers so that student learning can be enhanced."

"She works incredibly hard and does many of her duties behind the scenes, but they make Palmer a great place to teach, lead, and learn."

We are so proud of you, Mrs. Crain!
