Thank You, Ms. Tamika Davis!
This year our Teacher Honoree representing the Broward County region is Ms. Tamika Davis, a 2nd grade teacher at Morrow Elementary School.
Due to the pandemic, Broward County schools closed physical classrooms and transitioned to a virtual setting. Despite this disruption in learning, Ms. Davis went the extra mile, calling students’ homes to ensure they had the necessary resources and technology to log on every day. Because of her consistent effort, the class had the highest number of students in attendance amongst second grade students.
Ms. Davis emphasizes the importance of respecting an individual’s differences and promotes a culture of togetherness and encouragement in her classroom. And, this is reflected in her relationships with her students. Often, her CLI coach, Karen Harrison, hears the students say, “I love you” as class ends for the day.
Ms. Davis’s focus on building and sustaining a positive classroom culture embodies the principles of the Power of 3, a fundamental CLI philosophy in creating a thriving learning environment. Throughout the year, Ms. Davis has continued to learn and grow, and she continues to put her students first, doing what she can to improve as an educator. Join us on June 10 to help us in congratulating and celebrating Ms. Davis.
