CMSD Recognizes Administrator and Teachers of the Year


    Educators. They mentor and motivate, inspire and innovate.  But what makes for a great educator? As poet William Butler Yeats once said, “Education is the not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” For great examples of those who spark the love of learning in CMSD students, look no further than the 10 men and women who have been selected as the 2018-19 Administrator and Teachers of the Year.

     On Thursday, January 17, 2019 the school board of CMSD recognized this year's recipients of Administrator and Teachers of the Year awards. This group of outstanding individuals have made an indelible impact on their students and colleagues and for this WE THANK YOU.
