April's greatest gift as a teacher is her ability to inspire her students to see themselves as leaders. She embraces the notion that we develop children's confidence and independence by empowering them to carry out tasks within their classroom community. When thinking of what it means to be an outstanding teacher in FCPS, April reminds us that one does not have to be flashy or charismatic. It is her quiet, consistent commitment to excellence coupled with the genuine belief in others that inspires each of us to do our best. One parent shared "FCPS is lucky to have such a dedicated and skilled teacher as Ms. April and so are all of her students- past, present, and future."
