Media specialist Allison Harvey has been named the 2020-2021 Teacher of the Year for Boevers Elementary School.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”- Eleanor Roosevelt

The quote is important, Harvey said.

“Children are the future and I have always felt I could be myself around them. I was passionate to become an educator because of the phenomenal teachers who impacted my life and shaped my future,” Harvey said. “There is nothing more fulfilling than creating an atmosphere which encourages imagination and innovation, fosters a love for learning, and inspires children to turn their dreams into reality.”

With masks and social distancing, teaching is not quite the same this year.

“Flexibility is essential!,” she said. “This fall, the library has been mobile. Instead of classes visiting the library, I travel to in-person classrooms for lessons and checkout or teach virtually over Zoom. When it comes to book choice and checkout, students either request books online or choose from rolling carts placed outside of their classroom. Books requested through the online system, Destiny Discover, are pulled from the shelf and checked out to the student then delivered to their classroom weekly.”

Harvey began teaching at Union Public Schools in 2015. “This is my sixth year at Boevers Elementary.”
