Pioneer Valley Excellence in Teaching Awards

It is with great excitement that I announce the winners of this year’s Pioneer Valley Excellence in Teaching Awards to you. 
Easthampton is proud to have two winners this year:
Jill Collins, Grade 4 Teacher at Center Pepin Elementary
and
Margaret Betts, Grade 4 Teacher at Maple Elementary School
Congratulations to both exceptional teachers, who managed to shift their classrooms to remote learning in monumental ways – really engaging with every student and building a strong classroom community.  Beyond that, each educator was also praised by colleagues for their impact beyond the classroom.  Jill Collins collaborated to start a Social Justice PLC (Professional Learning Community) and has been instrumental in securing resources and tools for all grades in this important work.  Margaret Betts has worked tirelessly to support educators this year pivot to online tools specifically around mathematics.
Both educators will be recognized by the Grinspoon Foundation in a virtual celebration this spring.
Please join me in congratulating these exceptional Easthampton educators!
One final thought:   I would be remiss not to mention all the amazing educators in Easthampton who have taken on the challenge of remote learning this year and soared.  Their support of colleagues, relationships with families, problem-solving attitudes and complete dedication make them all winners!
