Our latest Teacher of the Month Winner!
Mrs. Jennifer Greene of Luther Elementary School.
“Jennifer is an amazing 5th grade teacher in Luther America, she buys so many supplies for her students and it would be so nice to see her get a little something back. She has a fb page just for her past students to keep in touch. It’s super sweet – She truly has an amazing heart. I don’t know why one teacher would be better or more deserving than another, but I sure hope you pick her : )” – Janette Powders
Mrs. Brittany Gober of Barnes Elementary (Mid-Del).
“Brittany teaches Pre-k which is not always as easy of a job as people think it is. Here in the great state of Oklahoma, PK isn’t mandated which means kids aren’t legally required to attend. That also means that during the exciting new A/B rotation we are doing with our students this year, Pre-K isn’t required to attend virtual days & therefor could possibly only be getting 2-3 days of instruction per week. Brittany has gone above & beyond to put together work for our students to have at home, even though she isn’t required to. She sends home work they can do at home, along with manipulatives for them to use & creates online work for them to practice with if they’d like as well. The amount of time & energy she puts into her lesson plans has more than doubled since we do the same job with A students & then again with B students a few days later. I have worked with many teachers in my years in Education, but none have been as passionate about teaching 4 year olds as Brittany Gober! Her heart legitimately shines through in all that she does.” – Lashaunda Warlick
Mrs. Keri Powell of Nicoma Park Middle School
“Every year, Mrs. Powell creates a “haunted forest” in the library for her middle school students. This year, because of covid, she, along with her daughter Bailey Stevens, created a haunted escape room! There are THREE escape room games for 6 teams, complete with QR codes for clues to keep it hands free. The theme is haunted fairy tales. No picture or description can truly do it justice. They have worked nonstop for three weeks, including until midnight last night to complete it. We would love to have you come out and take pictures and see if you can escape!!! Mrs. Powell goes above and beyond with each unit, but she has truly outdone herself this time..” – Lindsey Sanders
Mr. Ryan Bridenstine of Enid High School
“He is the reason I want to be a teacher. When I first started high school I couldn’t care less about math because I couldn’t understand it. By the end of my freshman year I was close to failing and had to go into his class and make up so many assignments. When I finally got caught up, with his help, I actually learned to love math and it became my favorite subject. He inspired me to further my education and become a math teacher just like him. He changed my outlook on not only my education but on everything. He saw a kid that needed some extra help and he went above and beyond to make sure I passed his class and have a good future.” – Ashli Davis
Ms. Carly Heitland of Harding Fine Arts Academy
“This is my first year at Harding and it’s been hard starting 100% online. Ms. Heitalnd has supported me and the rest of her students through this insane time. Ms. Heitland not only teaches us English but she teaches us about real life and how to use English in real life. She is an amazing human being. I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher. Thank you so much Ms. Heitland!” – Avalon Howard
