Teacher Who Makes A Difference – October 2015

Brenda Hommel- Stephen Decatur High School

Nominated by: Silviya Gallo

Mrs. Hommel takes teaching to the next level. She doesn’t simply want the students to test well, she wants them to succeed and think critically. She challenges them to succeed by spending almost every minute of the day planning for a lesson that students will enjoy. Mrs. Hommel is caring, and it shows by the number of students who stop every day to say hello even though they’re not in her class any more.
