This is a monthly honor designed to recognize local teachers who make a difference in the lives of their students.

She credited the students, their parents, her teaching team, her administration and Showell's staff for providing an environment where she can thrive as an educator. Ms. Davidson attended Showell Elementary as a student and says she is excited to be teaching at the very school where she began her lifelong learning experience.

She was nominated by a parent of one of her students:
Nominated by:  Silviya Gallo
"I want to nominate my son's teacher - Miss Davidson. When my son came home reciting the Mathematical Practices after a week of school, I knew she is special. Miss Davidson is passionate, caring, and fun, inspiring all of her students to always be their best. She is very well organized, and often updates parents with details from the classroom. She spends many hours looking for the best resources for her students, and reading educational materials. Her excitement about teaching is transferred onto the students, and parents. She is constantly sending additional materials home, so parents can have resources to help the young learners. It's easy to tell Miss Davidson doesn't have a favorite subject - she loves them all! She is building a great community in her classroom, encouraging students to read high level books, write using rich vocabulary, practice math with a variety of strategies, and learn about science through meaningful concepts. Miss Davidson is a huge asset to SES and all of her students are fortunate to be in her class. Miss Davidson makes a difference in my son's and his classmates lives daily in third grade, and the skills she's teaching them will make a difference in their future as well! Thank you Miss Davidson!"
