Davis, who was nominated by Woodmen-Roberts Assistant Principal, Shelley Ruiz, has served the school for the past five years in her current role. In the nomination letter, Ruiz highlighted the work ethic, genuine commitment to education, positive attitude, and love for teaching that Davis displays.

“I love working with kindergarten students because it’s their first ‘school experience’,” said Davis. “I don’t take that lightly. I want to lay the groundwork for a successful academic experience.”

She takes pride in seeing her students grow throughout the school year. “I love when a child goes from being sad to leave their parents to excitedly running into the classroom, eager to tell me something,” added Davis. “The best feeling is seeing their face light up when they’ve learned to write their name or sound out a word for the first time.”

 Her most valued accomplishment during the 2019-2020 school year was working with students diagnosed with diabetes. Davis wasn’t familiar with the disease prior, so she took a class to help those students with their health concerns, and their academics.

“I love all of my students, but my relationship with those two was special. We made going to the nurse a fun activity, playing ‘I Spy’ along with the way and singing songs. Davis continued, “I read to them while they got their insulin shots.” She added, “It was a challenging year, but very rewarding.”
