Teacher Of The Year!December 14, 2016
Resident Maryann was a former elementary school teacher in Lake City. Her career in education has followed her through retirement, and remains an important aspect of her life at Maple Court. The staff took notice of her ongoing interest in education and wanted to find a way to help her feel like a teacher again.
A day was organized where Maryann could teach a class to some of the staff's children. She was excited for the opportunity, and quickly got to work planning her lesson. Maryann began with a couple readings from her favorite books, including Dr. Seuss's Green Eggs and Ham. After, she led the older students through addition and subtraction flashcards, and ABC flashcards for the younger kids. She led the class effortlessly and did a great job engaging her students.
At the end of the lesson, Maryann was presented with a Teacher of the Year certificate and a goody-bag complete with pencils, pens, and note pads to fuel her love for writing. The students and staff had such a fun time listening to Maryann teach! It was a joy to see her do what she loves most!
