Date of Award: Jan. 14, 2015

Students in Cagney Weaver’s fourth-grade classroom at North Bay Elementary regularly outperform their peers in the district and state thanks to their teacher's focus on Common Core State Standards. Beyond the textbook, Cagney utilizes multi-sensory activities like music, lyrics and body movement to help motivate students.
