This school year the CTA met and discussed rewarding a teacher that constantly goes above and beyond the call of duty for everyone at Community R-VI. This person has taken on the duties of Professional Development Chairperson and was responsible for planning our monthly professional development meetings.  She is the sponsor of both the junior class and STRIVE as well as helping to implement the Math Problem of the Week in the Middle and High School. She also has taken on numerous hours of continuing education to implement the Physics First Program.  This year’s winner was Melanie Utterback.
