Over the past few weeks, we've named several new All Star award winners!
The first is Districtwide Teacher of the Visually Impaired Teacher, Shannon Miles! ⭐
Shannon was nominated for this award by her co-worker Cindy Putney, who had this to say about Shannon, "Shannon gives 100 percent to the job. She lets students know that they can do anything that sighted people can do. Shannon has students Google famous blind people to understand that they can go on to do great things. Shannon Miles is a bright shining star! The school district is lucky to have such a dedicated employee."
