Sleeper and Wilcox win award

Do a quick Google search and you will see there are more than 32,000 teachers in the state of Arkansas. What it won't tell you is that yesterday, two of PSD's 4th grade teachers, Julia Sleeper and Farrah Wilcox, were recognized as high impact teachers for multiple years of high student growth. Only 50 teachers in Arkansas achieved this high honor and Mrs. Sleeper and Ms. Farrah are the only two in NEA! Pictured with our high impact teachers is Ivy Pfeffer, Deputy Commissioner of the Arkansas Department of Education who presented them with their award. They will be participating in focus groups for the DESE this summer. Mrs. Sleeper and Ms. Farrah have set the bar and expectations high for their students over the years and their hard work and quiet determination has paid off in a big way for our students. Congratulations! We are proud of you!
