Jesse Sherwood Elementary School
Good Evening Sherwood Family:
Recently I received an email asking me to nominate a teacher that goes beyond the call of duty each and everyday. It was a difficult decision on which teacher to nominate but, I thought about the many hats Ms. Troutman wears for Sherwood School and beyond. She truly goes beyond the classroom to better the lives of our children as well as our staff members. Ms. Troutman is a math teacher, EGN Math Lead, mentor to our children, social committee member, retirement organizer, etc., etc. She never say's no when Ms. Easter and I ask her to do something and is constantly coming up with ideas and events to enhance the lives of our children or the staff. She is a team player and an exceptional human being. Below is the press release done by CPS and my nomination is attached. Congratulations again to our very own...MS. TROUTMAN!!! I am so happy she was chosen for this high honor!!!! Sincerely, Alice Buzanis
CPS PRESS RELEASE - Each year, teachers throughout CPS spend hundreds of their own hard-earned dollars outfitting their classrooms with school supplies. It is one of the many ways that teachers go above and beyond to provide their students with the high-quality education they deserve. In recognition of that contribution, CPS this week partnered with OfficeMax and Chicago Bears wide-receiver Brandon Marshall to provide 100 of the District’s most outstanding teachers with $100,000 in new school supplies for their classrooms.
