Spirit of the Mustang - March 2016

Submitted by andrea.pond on Wed, 03/30/2016 - 12:42

The teacher I am nominating for the Spirit of the Mustang is dedicated and talented in many diverse ways.  Of course this could be said of every teacher in this room today. A few of the particular talents possessed by this teacher include origami, photography, drawing, original super hero costumes, and the patience of Job. This teacher is a fan of Star Wars, Calvin & Hobbes, Lord of the Rings, and helping students be successful.
