The 2012 Parchment Teacher of the Year is Amy Triplett, Central Elementary School Fifth Grade Teacher
Amy was nominated for this honor by two of her colleagues — Diane Dowell and Rick Bagley. Among the many qualities for which she received praise, the list includes Amy’s excellence as a teacher, genuine concern for students (in and out of the classroom), active involvement with the association over many years, leadership of the Central staff, excellent parent communications, and her role as part of a positive school environment. After hearing of Amy’s selection for this award, the accolades from teachers and parents began to pour in. Her students and their parents know that the time spent in her classroom will be a long-term benefit to their future educational success.
Amy will be publicly recognized for this honor at the KCEA Partners in Education dinner, being held at the Fetzer Center (on WMU’s campus) on April 26.
