STACEY MAKES THE DAY BET­TER

South Burnett Times - - SOUTH BURNETT SCHOOL NEWS -

RE­MEM­BER the teacher who told you what made you dif­fer­ent also made you spe­cial?

Or the one who spent that lit­tle bit of ex­tra time show­ing you how to kick a footy?

Or the one who opened your eyes to lov­ing books and read­ing?

These in­spir­ing teach­ers are the un­sung heroes of our com­mu­nity.

Black­butt State School’s Prep teacher Stacey Hazell has been named as a nom­i­nee in the 2017 Of­ficeMax A Day Made Bet­ter Teach­ing Awards.

Miss Hazell said she was hon­oured by her sur­prise nom­i­na­tion which was strongly sup­ported by her own fam­ily as well as Black­butt State School staff, stu­dents and par­ents.

A Day Made Bet­ter recog­nises and re­wards ex­cep­tional pri­mary and sec­ondary teach­ers.

Par­ents, stu­dents, fel­low staff mem­bers - in fact, any­one who has ever known an ex­cep­tional teacher - can show their ap­pre­ci­a­tion by giv­ing them the recog­ni­tion they de­serve.

This year there will be 10 na­tional win­ners who will re­ceive a prize pack val­ued at more than $ 6000 for their class­room and an Ap­ple iPad.
