Why nominated? English teacher Deb Fisher writes, “Ebony meets each and every assignment head on and with enthusiasm. She does her absolute best with each assignment, no matter what it is. We recently wrote a personal narrative and she had started on hers the minute I finished talking about it, even though we weren’t starting on them for a few days. Not only is she academically confident and a go-getter, she also possesses a very positive demeanor; she’s always cheerful and appears to be happily in charge of every single day. In addition, Ebony is very helpful, offering to pass back papers on a regular basis. I consider Ebony a gift in the classroom!”
