It has been an absolute pleasure to serve with Michelle Stull at a school of 610 students and 55+ instructional staff members for the past few years. Michelle not only meets the needs of her students through detailed lesson planning and activities to meet state standards, but she stresses the importance of building relationships. She works with students to methodically break down walls of insecurity and low self-esteem to build bridges to personal and academic success. Her students demonstrate positive peer connections that keep discipline issues at bay and a strong focus on scholastic achievement.
In the past two years, I have observed Michelle in a leadership role sharing her expertise through professional development. Through a lens of positivism to achieve the desired outcomes, she provides materials and tools, as well as individual support and mentoring, to interested teachers.
Embracing this approach is a game changer. Anyone wanting to help students through a different method or feel better about what they do without physically changing their job , should check out Michelle’s work.
