The Pervasive Parenting Center recently awarded their 2019 Teacher of the Year to one local educator.

 

The recipient was chosen for her hard work and dedication in working with children, especially those with disabilities. This is the fifth year for the event.


Janna Gibson, a pre-k teacher at Wister Schools, was chosen as the 2019 Teacher of the Year. According to her peers, Gibson is a dedicated, compassionate and hard-working educator.


“This year has been unique in the amount of students with special needs,” said Principal Keli Cartwright. “Mrs. Gibson has worked diligently to make sure that every student is taught and taken care of. She has stepped out of her comfort zone and truly sought out information and training to better serve her students. She has created a safe environment that fosters every learning style. Each child requires a very unique and individualized learning program, and Mrs. Gibson is willing to make sure that takes place. Her students have made extreme progress socially and academically.”


The Teacher of the Year is nominated by their peers and community members each year, and those nominations are then voted on by the Pervasive Parenting Center board of directors.


“Educators are one of our children’s greatest resources,” said Kodey Toney, PPC Director. “The board members and I work hard to make sure that they know how important they are and that they are appreciated. This is a small way of recognizing them for their dedication to helping children with special needs.”


In addition to an award, the educators were given $50 worth of prizes.


The Pervasive Parenting Center is dedicated to helping families in eastern Oklahoma by providing resources for those living with disabilities.
