Congratulations to the District Employees of the Year
| Congratulations to Stacy Roberts|
Santee School District Teacher of the Year
|After graduating from San Diego State University, Stacy Roberts made Santee School District her teaching home, specifically, Cajon Park School - where she has taught over a 19-year span. While at Cajon Park, Mrs. Roberts has taught a diverse range of subjects in grades 6th through 8th, including algebra, history, language arts, and science. She has also taught enrichment classes in art, architectural design, and leadership.|
Stacy has represented the District as a presenter at the San Diego Computers Using Educators (CUE) conference and presented to District staff on the Professional Development Day this past January.
Mrs. Roberts believes when a teacher is involved with the community they are more connected to the education and success of its children. Her community involvement includes serving on several district committees, working with Parks and Recreation to beautify Santee's outdoor spaces, coordinating a partnership with Urban Corps for the school recycling program, and serving as a mentor for San Diego Christian college students.
In the classroom Stacy becomes a facilitator for learning, allowing students to develop critical thinking skills and creativity, using the best tools to access information. She wants her students to love learning and be able to succeed no matter what struggles and challenges they may encounter.
Santee School District congratulates Stacy Roberts as District Teacher of the Year. Mrs. Roberts will represent Santee School District at Salute to Teachers on October 10, 2015, competing for the title of San Diego County Teacher of the Year.
