"What do you value most about being a teacher?"
"The most valuable part of teaching is helping my students grow. That growth includes their academic ability, their confidence, and their desire to do their best. It is so exciting when a student says, 'Oh, I get it now!' or their face lights up because they finally understand a difficult concept. Being an educator is a calling. It's a commitment that can be very challenging but so rewarding!"
Here are three facts about Mrs. Wooten:
- Her favorite color is blue. 💙
- She enjoys planting and caring for flowers. 🌼
- 3. The beach is my favorite vacation spot. 🏖️
