Tammy Lawrence, a 5th grade teacher at Syracuse Arts Academy, can always make her students smile, she even make math fun. Quite the challenge indeed. Mrs Lawrence "has treated every student fairly by including everyone into everything. Whenever we did class activities, she would always look around the room and check to see if everyone was included. If you weren’t included in school activities, she would talk to you after the school day was over and she would take time out of her day to find ways to fix it." says Lila Wilson and Aiden Pullam, students of Mrs Lawrence.
They go on to say: "if you ever missed a school day she always grabbed all of the school work you missed and gave it to you personally. Then she explained what you missed during school."
Mrs. Lawrence receives a special recognition award from Zions Bank, an overnight stay at the Anniversary Inn, dinner for two at the Roof Restaurant downtown, and two season passes to the Hale Center Theater. At the end of the year, one lucky teacher will win the lease of a new car provided by Burt Bros. Tire and Service.
