A Caddo school has bragging rights for their triple win

CADDO PARISH (KTBS) -

A Caddo school has bragging rights for their triple win. It's one of the highest honors a school can receive.

They where all honored during this week's Caddo Parish School Board meeting, A. C. Steere principal Kim Derrick says the positive spotlight on her school is a dream come true.

 '"It feels great. It is such an honor.  I say every time we have a school gathering that our students and the teachers just make me look good.  I really do feel like being in education is not my job, it's my passion," said Derrick.

Principal Derrick attributes hard work, patience and kindness to her wins, however she says it is really the people that she works with that make the school such a success.

Fifth grader Tindol Hamm was awarded with the title of student of the year. She attributes her great work ethic to her success.  "Definitely having a good attitude and being able to work with other people and listening and following directions," said Hamm.
And as for Tindol, she says once she grows up she hopes to either become a teacher herself or a marine biologist.

And behind every successful student there is a good teacher like Glynis Johnston of A. C. Steere who took home the title of teacher of year.
One of her many creative methods of engaging  her students was to transform her classroom into a Starbucks cafe.  "The pathway that will make the children successful whether if it is through research, the arts, dance anything I can implement into my classroom to show their pathway for success," said Johnston.


The selection process for principal of the year takes place early in the school year.  Staff are responsible for making that decision.
