Ms. Chapman truly is a teacher of teachers and can be relied on to take leadership roles within her department and building-wide. She works tirelessly to ensure her students benefit from her pedagogy, staying current with the latest trends in teaching and how to use technology to foster a blended learning environment. Ms. Chapman's passion for her students and teaching has supported the school culture, where her positivity impacts all who have the pleasure of coming into contact with her. Ms. Chapman is an active member of the school community.

This school year she supports the learning of her colleagues in her role as Technology Mentor. In this capacity, she can often be found working collaboratively with her colleagues, supporting the integration of instructional technology within their instruction. Her classroom is a place where students feel safe to take risks and support the learning of their peers. She crafts lessons that challenge all of her students while engaging them in meaningful learning. This student-centered approach is echoed by her students. All one has to do is cross the threshold of her classroom door to see the evidence of her passion on the smiling faces of her students.
