The Table Rock Lake Chamber of Commerce and Table Rock Community Bank honored Mrs. Tara Mitchell as the Teacher of the Month. Mitchell is a third-grade teacher at Reeds Spring Elementary School.
“Tara is a dedicated educator. Her students are always highly engaged in her lessons,” said principal Laura Weber. “She is a natural leader and always willing to go the extra mile.”
This is Mitchell’s 13th year teaching at Reeds Spring Schools. When the district created a virtual learning option for students this year, she was the first teacher to volunteer and was excited to take on a new challenge.
“Tara has always focused on building relationships with her students and has managed to continue to excel at this, despite the challenges of connecting with students through a computer screen,” Weber said. “She sees the potential for growth in all students and works to help the students see that potential in themselves.”
Parents are also thankful for Mrs. Mitchell. One parent described her as being “patient and encouraging while setting high expectations for her students.”
