Congratulations to Mrs. Brooke Coffman for being selected for the McDonald's Outstanding Educator Award!✨ This award program honors local educators for exhibiting the ultimate dedication to their students and those that go the extra mile to contribute to the improvement of education in the communities we serve. Community members were invited to submit nominations online and Mrs. Coffman was selected from a pool of more than 1,700 nominations - 1 of only 5 $1000 winners! Winners of the outstanding educator award each receive a Visa gift card to use toward their classroom, a coffee mug, certificates and McDonald’s coupons to provide to parents with outstanding students throughout the year. The Outstanding Educator Award Recipients are selected at random by using a random generator tool. Here is what the nomination for Mrs. Coffman said: I am nominating Brooke Coffman because of her dedication and love she pours into every student she meets. She offers more love and patience than any other human I have met. She creates and encourages opportunities that most of these students would never receive if it wasn’t for her ongoing support and encouragement. Brooke has said before, I am not only influencing these children as students but as future adults. She is phenomenal and gives 110% and expects nothing in return." Congrats Mrs. Coffman and we are so grateful for the hard work and dedication you bring every day! #OneWillow

We now have a sensory path at the elementary school that is utilized for behavior regulation! Sensory paths are a great resource and benefit for students because they can help reduce stress or anxiety, improve cognitive function and sharpen their gross motor skills, improve spatial awareness, improve hand-eye coordination and so many other benefits! All K-4 students will have access to use the sensory path for regulating behaviors. #onewillow

October is #NationalPrincipalsMonth! Today we're highlighting and celebrating Mr. Chris Rodgers, Willow Springs Elementary School Principal. Mr. Rodgers has worked in education for 21 years, 13 of those years in administration. Here's a short Q&A with Mr. Rodgers! Q: What do you want students and staff to know about you? A: That I want what is best for kids and to help them learn and grow. We often have to make tough decisions, but every decision made is in the best interests of students and staff. I know I’m blessed to work with a building full of amazing teachers that share the same passion for educating our kids and preparing them for the future. Q: What do you like most about being an educator? A: It’s a very rewarding job and I love the opportunity to make a difference in our kid’s lives. You can form relationships to last a lifetime with both students and staff. Q: What advice would you give to someone seeking a career in education? A: Education is a very challenging field, but very rewarding. My advice to others is to always do what you believe is right and what is best for the kids. Teaching kids is all about what you can do to improve their quality of life and it’s a great opportunity to build relationships. Lastly, it is important to find a balance; remember to prioritize your life, faith, family and then your career! Thank you Mr. Rodgers for all that you do, we appreciate you! #OneWillow
