Ada City School District Teacher of the Year and army veteran,  Michelle Clonch, was named as one Oklahoma's  six Rising Star Educators at a ceremony at the State Fairgrounds on August 30th.  Clonch, a third grade teacher at Washington Grade Center was presented the award by Joy Hofmeister, State Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Washington Grade Center Principal, Pam Martin, expressed her excitement about Clonch's recognition.  "Ms. Clonch is known for her ability to encourage every child to succeed.  Her classroom is a place where innovative learning takes place every day."

In her portfolio for Oklahoma Teacher of the Year, Ms. Clonch stated, "There are kids in my classes every year that come from situations that looks very similar to the one that I experienced.  I do what I do for the child that feels alone, or for the child that thinks he's stupid.  I want my children to know that I truly believe that they can and will learn incredible things.  I do what I do because I want my students to be a better version of themselves."
