Our teachers are amazing, which is why we share the story of a school’s Teacher of the Year every week ... please help us celebrate 2021 Boston Elementary School Teacher of the Year Brenna Lloyd!
Boston Elementary School Teacher of the Year Brenna Lloyd is known for her stellar student engagement skills.
This past school year, she upped her game, earning districtwide colleagues’ respect for her abilities to transform her classroom engagement techniques to fully connect with Digital Learning students online. She also earned the admiration of CCSD’s Teacher of the Year judges, who named her one of four finalists for the top honor.
“She is a model digital teacher,” Principal Valerie Lowery said. “Mrs. Lloyd believes in the power of engagement, so much in fact that she makes it a priority to visit each student in her class at home. She genuinely cares for each student and their academic needs, as well as their social and emotional ones.”
Facilitating morning meetings and eating lunch alongside her fourth-graders are among the many ways the 18-year educator exceeds expectations in building relationships with students, which is greatly appreciated by them and their parents.
“She makes me feel smart and important,” one student shared. “She even tells the class that she loves us, and we love her, too. Mrs. Lloyd is my favorite teacher ever.”
In her own words: “Students are more than just a vessel, waiting to be filled year after year. Students deserve and are looking to their teacher to help them embrace and face the challenges that will stand before them. Now, more than ever, students need a connection and someone who sees them.”
