November 2016 Educator of the Month

We are surrounded…

With amazing educators who demonstrate their care and commitment to  each generation of children.

Congratulations to the November 2016 Educator of the Month Winner…

Tracy Orr of Cross Roads High School in the Granite Falls School District.

Please enjoy these nominations...

  • Tracy Orr is such an amazing hard working educator. She does not only go above and beyond, but truly cares for her students. If it weren’t for her I know may others who would have given up.

  • She’s 110% for her students well being, always. No one more deserving.

  • She actually helps you understand what you don’t get. She makes you want to strive to succeed.

  • She is such a caring teacher. Mrs. Orr goes out of her way to make sure her students get the help they need. She never gives up on students and accepts each and every one of us for who we are.

  • I would not have graduated, let alone on time without Mrs. Orr. She was the reason I didn’t give up on school.

  • Mrs. Orr goes above and beyond to make sure you understand the course material. Math is difficult for a lot of students and she will teach it to you in as many different ways as she knows, just so everyone can be on the same page and not be miserable. She also stays after school several days a week to help struggling students earn the math credits they didn’t get in previous years. Mrs. Orr is the best kind of teacher there is, she’s bubbly, intelligent, caring and above all, she takes pride in helping her students succeed and strive to be better at math and in life.

  • She goes above and beyond what is needed to ensure the success of her students. In my personal case, she is the only reason I graduated. She stayed on my case about my grade and would offer her own time to tutor me and make sure that I did what she believed possible for me to do. She’s more than just a teacher, she’s an amazing friend and an inspiration showing me that there are teachers who are in this field solely because they want to help the world blossom into a beautiful place.

Rick presented a plaque, a great big check to display, and $500 to help defray miscellaneous costs for the classroom to our winner.
