During its annual State of SLLIS address, Founder & President Rhonda Broussard announced our 2015 Better World Awardees! The Better World Awards celebrate those staff members who exemplify the mission and vision of St. Louis Language Immersion Schools. Three of five possible awards are being given this year:
The Teacher of the Year creates a transformative educational experience for their students. They live the mission, vision and core values of St. Louis Language Immersion Schools. The honoree is an active contributor to various instructional teams and inspires peers towards deeper instructional engagement.
The Support Staff Member of the Year enables all success to occur seamlessly. They anticipate the needs of instructional staff and actively seek ways to serve the school community.
“Mr.Nathan” Shea joined our team in The French School in the spring of 2014 as a Special Education teacher. He was adamant that he did not only serve Special Education students, but that he served all students. He could be found consulting with teachers and parents daily in support of students who were and were not on his instructional caseload. Mr. Nathan impacted the lives of many students before his unexpected passing earlier this school year.
