What the school division said about this Excellent Educator: Suzanne Tate deserves recognition for going above and beyond to connect with students and families during virtual teaching and learning this school year. For example, she purchased books, supplies and lap desks for students, and personally visited each students’ home to drop off items she thought would help them feel comfortable learning from home. She also has maintained personal connections with students and families by sending notes and gift cards to recognize students’ efforts with virtual learning.
