2017 Character Education Champion Teacher Award: Yvonne Caldwell
Each year the Foundation recognizes and honors educators who are outstanding in their use of the curriculum and character education lessons with their students.
Mrs. Caldwell used the perseverance, fortitude and example of the Uncommon Friends to promote a growth mindset with her students. It was this work and direction with the curriculum that stood out and assisted us in selecting her as the champion teacher. Mrs. Caldwell in the past worked on a committee to help revise, update and align the SMARTboard lessons with Social Studies standards.
