"It has been said, 'Every child is entitled to the promise of a teacher’s optimism, enthusiasm, time, and energy.' As Crescent High School’s Teacher of the Year, Candace Madden epitomizes this promise. Without a doubt, Candace has a passion for teaching and students. She loves Crescent students, sees the best in every child, and genuinely cares about their individual success. Her energy and enthusiasm make her classroom an exciting and fun place to learn, and she is always willing to give her time to students. Whether they need a listening ear, a good laugh, or help for their next math test, Candace’s door is always open, and she always welcomes them with a smile!"

Congratulations, Mrs. Madden!
