Savannah Woody named MSE's Celebrating Excellence in Education Awardee for 2020-21

Savannah Woody teaches kindergarten at Maize South Elementary. During the 2020-21 school year, she was named one of 12 Celebrating Excellence in Education Award winners. 

She decided to pursue education because of her love for kids. She said, “I’m always in awe of how flexible and positive kids are. I love seeing how much they grow and learn in one short year!” During the 2020-21 school year, Savannah taught remotely. This experience taught her to accept the imperfections and quirks about herself. She said, “I learned to reflect and not judge myself so harshly.” The best part of her school day is her morning meeting. She enjoys sharing “Good Things”  and hearing about all the things her students are excited about in their lives. 

We are proud to have Emily as part of the OneMa1ze team!
