Help us in congratulating Broken Bow Middle School teacher, Carolyn Troxel as our Outstanding Teacher of the Year! It had been a day full of standardized testing for the school, ending with a presentation in the auditorium. Little did Troxel know, that not only were her 7th and 8th grade students ready to surprise her, but her family was waiting in the library just a short distance down the hall.
Casey Garrigan, Marketing & Sales Relations Manager and Principal Rusty Kluender asked Troxel to the stage. Once the initial applause had subsided, Garrigan read part of Troxel’s application. When asked what rewards she finds in teaching, she wrote, “I am rewarded when my students have success no matter how big or small. Everyday I get to experience new worlds and learning through the eyes of my students. I get to capture that moment of inspiration when it emerges from these young learners and use it to constantly encourage others to do their best. I strive to make sure that every student is able to experience the joy that comes from doing a job well.”
Troxel, a middle school language arts teacher was awarded a plaque along with a check for $5,000. Great Plains Communications wants to thank her for her time and dedication and again congratulate her on being our Outstanding Teacher of the Year.
