Degrees and Certifications:
STUDENT WINNER: Zemar Smith
Zemar has a huge heart and more than once has stepped up to offer help to another student no matter who they are. Zemar has spoken up multiple times regarding the desire for a really positive school culture and spoken up for those that can't or choose not to speak for themselves. His ideas regarding positive school culture sparked and inspired building staff members to really look at how we can improve the way students interact with one another
STAFF WINNER: Mrs. Gwen Lewis
Mrs. Lewis has been with Colton School district for over twenty years. She was our art teacher (each class had a 45 minute a week art class) before she was a classroom teacher. Mrs. Lewis is retiring at the end of this year. Mrs. Lewis gives her full self to teaching, wanting the very best for each student. She cares deeply about their education and works hard so each child can reach their potential. Mrs. Lewis is always looking for better ways to involve and motivate her students in their learning. Incorporating a smart board and technology in her classroom are just a few examples. Engaging the students in fun lessons (example – Oregon Trail Game) on the computer to enhance learning is another way she excels as a teacher.
