CONNIE DELFINO "TEACHER OF THE MONTH" FOR DECEMBER

Connie works with all our students and staff to keep our school “safe.”  We do not consider Connie a “disciplinarian,” but rather a mentor and support teacher.  She helps students who break our “Otter Code of Conduct” find more acceptable ways to express their feelings.  She understands that we need to explicitly teach children the behaviors we want them to display.  She is a very caring person who develops strong positive relationships so students feel like school is a safe emotional and physical environment.  If students feel safe and less stressed, they are more able to handle the academic tasks given to them.  Connie does not give up on students.  She understands that some students need more time, practice, and encouragement before they are able to make the right choices consistently.  She displays so much empathy for our students and the situations many of them are facing. Students trust her and seek her out during emotional crises.  She is a valuable member of our staff.
