Congratulations to Shannon Altom, BPS DISTRICT EDUCATOR OF THE YEAR! To be honored by your peers in a district of THE BEST...well...there's just nothing more special! It's a great day to be a Spartan!
Teaching is a collaborative profession at its heart! Some do it so well....they even finish each other's sentences! "We got the sweetest little necklaces... I don’t think these could say it any more perfectly - (Hers)We finish each - (mine) other's sentences"
