We would like to Congratulate the October 2017 Educator of the Month Winner…
 
Marissa Nilsen of Centennial Middle School in the Snohomish School District.
 
A Special Thank You To Lisa For This Nomination…

Ms Marissa teaches 7/8 grade behavioral class. She never misses a day of school, even when she's sick.

She puts the kids needs in front of hers everyday of the school year. She spends countless (non-paid) hours trying to make her classroom a successful place. Many days she comes to work in the dark, and leaves in the dark.

Many of the kids come to school without having eaten breakfast, or dinner the night before, she does what she can to make sure they get something. She realizes that they did not choose to live in a household with a destructive parent, live in unsuitable foster care and/or just choose to act up/out for no reason. She cares deeply about her kids.

Many extra things she needs in the class she gets (herself), but can't get everything. A couple years ago, some of her kids joined the wrestling team, and she saw the need to be there for them, so she became an assistant wrestling coach (without knowing a thing about wrestling) to help them with this transition with all the other kids.

She has only been teaching a few years but is quite a remarkable, caring and committed teacher.
