Crystal Sabatke-Smith


2010 Middle School Teacher of the Year

6th Grade Language Arts
Centennial Middle School

To Crystal, a good teacher, ” not only is a lender of knowledge, but a teacher is also a model for responsibility, respect, life-long learning, success and positive thinking. I have never wanted to be a good teacher, or even a great teacher. Since I first decided that I would become an educator, I wanted to be a teacher who makes a difference – to students, to other teachers, and on the field of education.”
