“Her positive relationships with the students make them work harder and enjoy speech,” district officials said in a press release. “Dawn is certainly a valued part of PRE.”

Watson, the certified employee of the month for March, was nominated for exemplifying excellence in teaching day in and day out.

“Theresa not only cares greatly for her students, but for our district and our community, and is involved in many committees and groups,” officials said in the press release. “She truly strives for greatness every day.”
