H.C.R.  101

House concurrent resolution congratulating Katie Sullivan on being named the 2007 Vermont Teacher of the Year

Offered by:  Representative Hosford of Waitsfield

Whereas, the Vermont Teacher of the Year award recognizes a public school teacher who has demonstrated pedagogic and leadership skills that are in a class far above the typical instructor’s, and

Whereas, after extensive deliberations, the judging panel announced that Warren School faculty member, Katie Sullivan, is the 2007 Vermont Teacher of the Year, and

Whereas, the results from the 2005 NECAP testing recorded that students at the Warren School earned top scores in the Washington West school district for reading and writing and were tied for first place in math, and

Whereas, in 2005, the Vermont Business Roundtable named the Warren School as one of only 15 elementary schools in the state to earn its Medallion Quality School award, and

Whereas, these academic accomplishments are attributable in considerable measure to Katie Sullivan’s dynamic leadership in multiple facets of teaching students at the Warren School, and

Whereas, Katie Sullivan is a member of the Warren School’s school improvement action planning team and has served as a Vermont math professional development leader for both her own school and other central Vermont elementary schools, and

Whereas, she has spearheaded her school’s in-house teacher monitoring program, and

Whereas, outside the Warren School’s classrooms, Katie Sullivan graduated from the University of Vermont’s Vermont Mathematic Initiative; completed the Responsive Classroom course; has participated in the Vermont Lifeskills Scoring Institute; and has been a leader in the Washington West district’s scoring of students’ math and writing portfolios, and

Whereas, Katie Sullivan has mentored student teachers from area colleges; was named the U.S. Environmental Agency’s 1999 Environmental Educator of the Year; and was designated a finalist for the 2001 Presidential Award  for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching, now therefore be it

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives:

That the General Assembly congratulates Katie Sullivan on being named the 2007 Vermont Teacher of the Year, and be it further

Resolved:  That the secretary of state be directed to send a copy of this resolution to Katie Sullivan at the Warren School.
