Congratulations to Ms. Missy Barham, PUE's Teacher of the Year.  Ms. Barham was selected by her colleagues for this award.  
 
Ms. Barham is a graduate of USM with a degree in Elementary Education.  She started teaching at PUE in 2012 and taught 4th grade for 2 years and then moved to 3rd grade, where she has been for the past 3 years.  For the past two years, she has served as grade chair on the PUE Leadership Team.  
 
Some of Ms. Barham's thoughts on teaching are summed up in the following statement.
 
 " I believe teaching is a calling.  Each teacher has his or her own preference, gifts, and talents.  I prefer teaching the sweet ages of 7-10.  My passion is for all students to feel successful and that they enjoy coming to school!  I want to be able to learn something new every day just as I want my students to.  I think greeting each one of them at the door sets the tone for the day!  They seem to like it as well.  Knowing that I can make a difference in these young children's lives makes me love teaching even more!"
 
Congratulations Missy Barham!
