“She’s a great teacher, a nice person, always organized and goes above and beyond to help all students succeed. All of her classes are fun and educational.”
This is how one student described Cherie Crosby, the recipient of the 2014 student-selected Outstanding Teacher Award at this year’s 11th annual Founders Day celebration on January 31.
Crosby, director of Manor’s Early Childhood Education program and chair of the Liberal Arts Division, was one of 26 teachers nominated for the award. Each year, students submit their nominations for the Outstanding Teacher Award. This year, over 40 nominations were submitted.
Another student nominating Crosby for the award wrote, “She helps students to believe in themselves. She always answers your questions, whether it’s 7:00 in the morning or midnight. She pushes all of us beyond our limits and believes in each of us.”
Another student wrote, “She is always helpful and available,” and, “I came in as a student and am leaving a professional.”
