 Daisey HornerMs. Horner stated that her project will have a positive impact on the physical, emotional, and mental health of her students by helping them share experiences that build rapport inside and outside the classroom.  The project, which she has done before, helps students lower the shield that protects them from anything that might hurt like words, homework, finals, and popularity.  "When a teacher earns her students' respect, the possibilities are endless," states Ms. Horner.  With previous students, she "began to see classroom behaviors and learning increase all because we saw a Mourning Dove in a tree."

NWPE congratulates Ms. Horner for her hard work and creativity in the classroom.  Her award is certainly well-deserved as she seeks ways to increase student achievement.
