A hearty shout-out and congratulations to Ms. Pam Tippetts, the recent recipient of the Horace Mann Crystal Apple Award. Ms. Tippetts has taught 26 years, all at Sage Creek School. She has had experience in all grades, but has taught primarily 5th and 6th grades during her career. Ms. Tippetts currently fulfills the role of school facilitator which means she does a little bit of almost everything! Her primary role is the school mentor and has worked with and developed many excellent teachers who are either at our school or have moved on to other schools in the district (and beyond). Pam is an extremely hard worker and is very organized - she is methodical in her planning and execution of any responsibility and/or project she is a part of. Many staff members have leaned on Pam for support and guidance and esteem her as a gem of knowledge and expertise. Ms. Tippetts is a master teacher and has touched the lives of many in the Sage Creek community. Well done, Pam!
