“Ms. Pearce has the ability to teach to the way each individual child learns.
She focuses on the child, not a one style fits all approach.
She was nominated by several students for the Excel teaching award and won the award in 2018.
The district featured her in a video about her classroom management skills that they show in seminars and on youtube.
A teacher from New York City who had watched the video sent her a Crystal Apple to thank her for helping him in his classroom.
She is loved by faculty, parents and students.
Teaching is her love, not her job. She has wanted to teach since the 4th grade. She is now entering her 14th year of teaching.”

Original nomination: January 2022

“You can tell Ms. Pearce dedicates her life to the children she teaches. She is so incredibly uplifting and focuses so much on the children’s strengths. My son has struggled in school and having her as his teacher has been a huge blessing. He loves going to school because she makes it so fun. He’s gone from below the benchmark to above benchmark scores just in half the school year. I give her so much of that credit because she is so incredibly motivating to her students and helps them see the strengths in themselves,”
