I chose to pass the Spirit of the Mustang Award onto Amy Ollerton.  Amy is always positive, energetic, and enthusiastic.  She loves to help others and is always quick to offer support.  She loves serving her students.  She goes out of her way to help them reach their potential, whether it’s helping them to be organized and catch up on their work or expanding their learning with engaging lessons.  She gets to know students on a personal level and makes sacrifices to help them achieve goals.  I’ve even seen students with breakfast sandwiches that Amy gave them for completing a goal they created together.  She is always trying new things, whether it is experimenting with using various forms of technology in her lessons or finding community resources, like the art truck.  She collaborates with other subjects.  She provides students with authentic learning opportunities and showcases their work around the school.  She cares deeply about her students.  She is a great example of service and lifelong learning.  She exemplifies what it means to be a Mustang!
