2015 OESD 114 Regional Teacher of the Year Kim Witte, 2nd Grade Teacher at PineCrest Elementary School was honored at Central Kitsap School District's Board Meeting on September 24, 2014.
A National Board Certified Teacher, Ms. Witte views teaching as a calling. “I was meant to be a positive role model”. She uses her positive attitude to encourage and engage both her students and her fellow teachers, and to improve her own teaching techniques. For example, undaunted by failure, she took her National Boards twice before passing with 20 points to spare the third time. In this way, she leads by example. She does not give up when faced with challenges.
Congratulations Ms. Witte! You are truly inspirational.
