The Ocean Springs School District likes to give recognition to a Star teacher each year for their commitment to student academic excellence.
With a wide smile and tears streaming, Ocean Springs Upper Elementary Fourth Grade teacher Ms. Dawn Coleman was named the 2019 Stellar Star Teacher.
This award is voted on throughout the district by fellow teachers and staff. They award it to a teacher that goes above and beyond inside and outside of the classroom for the Greyhound Nation.
Ms. Coleman won overwhelmingly. For her, it truly is just all about her students. “My favorite part is honestly just my students. I love each and every one of them. I look forward to work every day to see them. It’s just the atmosphere here at the Upper. It’s very positive. It’s just a great environment.”
Before the award was presented comments from Ms. Coleman’s peers and students were read out. They said she makes them look forward to coming to school and learning each and every day.
