Amy Gustin, 6th Grade Teacher, Miami Trace Local Schools
The following testimonial was shared by Miami Trace Local Schools in selecting Amy Gustin as a 2015 Celebrate Teaching Distinguished Educator.
Amy Gustin believes and demonstrates that all students can learn at high levels. The same expectations are held for her lower-level students as well as those who are identified as gifted. Mr. Jeff Conroy, Miami Trace Middle School Principal said, “In my thirty-five years in education, Mrs. Gustin is one of the few educators who has had the success in working with all levels of students.”
Through strong relationships and connections with each individual student, Amy works to meet her students at their level to help them grow in their learning and love of math. Through her effective use of data, Amy is able to plan instruction that helps her students grow.
Amy leads her teacher-based team through meaningful discussion and planning of future lessons. Her leadership has had a positive effect on all team members as well as the building.
