3rd Grade Teacher at Silver Firs Elementary Receives Award
Ms. Sanders is well-known for her dedication to enriching the lives of the children in her classroom. As the Teacher Liaison in the school’s PTA, her primary focus is on the overall welfare of her students.
She was nominated for this award by fellow colleague Mary Fuda, who describes her as easy to work with, well-prepared and is a favorite among many of the school’s students.
“She is patient and kind with her students and can be named as a favorite by past and present students as well as parents,” Fuda said.
Ms. Sanders plans to use the award to provide books for the classroom AR program, as well as art supplies and rewards for her students – things that she usually spends hundreds of dollars of her own on.
Attorney Chris Davis and his wife started a program to help public school teachers get extra classroom supplies without having to spend their own money. The Davis Law Group School Supplies Gift Program gives a $100 OfficeMax gift card each week to a deserving Washington State Public school teacher and his/her class. Anyone can nominate a teacher for this program, including teachers, students, parents and administrators.
