We want to congratulate Mrs. Dinkel on receiving the Crystal Apple Award! The Crystal Apple Award recipient is nominated by other teachers at the school.
Here are some of the things that fellow her teachers have said about her:
Always willing to help
Works so hard in so many ways that go really unnoticed by many
She is an amazing and dedicated teacher
She goes above and beyond her work in the normal classroom with IEPs and helping students in all her co-taught classes. Plus, her students love her!
When we had to shut down for Covid. Trudy would set up her Zoom camera on herself teaching her lesson on the whiteboard. She has a positive attitude and is always smiling. She cares deeply about her students.
I love talking about pedagogy ideas with Trudy. We bounce ideas off of each other about helping our students improve their learning. She is so thoughtful and deliberate about her instruction plans to ensure that she meets the extra special needs, both academically and emotionally, of her students. I have also been very impressed that she would do an after-school soccer program for students who really need that time. Trudy is awesome.
Let's hear it for Mrs. Trudy Dinkel!
