Giving Greatness Evelyn Elementary Spanish Teacher

Meet The Inspiring Elementary Spanish Teacher #GiveGreatness

So many teachers never get the credit they deserve. Evelyn Hamlin is a teacher who teaches her whole elementary curriculum in Spanish. She received recognition from her school and students recently with a surprise event at her school hosted by SMART.

There are so many inspiring teachers out there. I appreciate that SMART is taking time to encourage those teachers who give greatness every single day. We are part of a noble profession and teachers deserve to be noticed and recognized.

This video inspired me and reminded me how many teachers I know who have not been thanked as they deserve. Who gives greatness in your life?

As part of the Give Greatness campaign, SMART is featuring some teachers who have been nominated who deserve recognition. Senora Evelyn Hamlin is the first video released as part of this campaign and was presented with a SMART Board.

More than 850 nominations were submitted from around the world. SMART has chosen three submissions and is surprising the nominees. They visited the school, secretly interviewed the nominees and gave them special recognition.
