GREENTREE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
TEACHER OF PROMISE
ERIN CLARKE, our SAI Education Specialist/K-2, was surprised on Feb. 13th, by a committee of District Leadership, led by Superintendent Terry Walker, IUSD Board Members, IUSD teachers, her own family members and members of the Greentree Staff and recognized as one of four Teachers of Promise in Irvine Unified School District.
This is an honor bestowed on teachers in their first or second year of teaching who demonstrate exceptional teaching strategies, collegial relationships and connections with families. For those of you who know her, she hits the mark and then some, on all those levels. Greentree School feels very fortunate to have Ms. Clarke working with our students and staff and looks forward to many more years!
Erin will be honored at the I.U.S.D. Teacher of the Year Awards Banquet being held on May 10, 2013!
