Mrs. Ashleigh Hazel Named IWCS Division Middle School Level Teacher of the Year!
Mrs. Ashleigh Hazel IWCS Division Middle School Level Teacher of the Year 2018-2019!
Our GTMS Titan Teacher of the Year was named the IWCS Division Middle School Level teacher of the year. We are very proud of Mrs. Ashleigh Hazel and are grateful to have her as a pivotal part of our Titan family. Here are just a few reasons why we love Mrs. Ashleigh Hazel.
Mrs. Hazel is devoted to providing a safe and inspiring learning environment for her students where her students can truly grow and express themselves as they discover their voices through singing, playing instruments, writing and other creative mediums.
She has an incredible ability to allow her students to feel loved and accepted fully. Her students sense her authentic care for them and this allows them to grow in ways that they might never expect in a chorus and music class. She molds her students to be the type of caring and supportive people that we most want to create as educators.
She truly teaches with equity, which models how she sees the world. She takes the time to learn about her students' individual cultures and circumstances and makes sure they each feel valued equally in her class.
She is also a driving force of the culture within GTMS. She makes herself available to help all teachers who need inspiration and support. Her sincere nature makes her peers feel safe to seek help from her and she always makes time for them. She does all of this with the most humble nature that does not seek accolades as rewards. Her giving nature is sincere and without pretense and it is a gift to us all.
