On June 6, 2017, SW Hackett Lodge, continued its honoring of the Sequoia Elementary School Teacher of the Year.  This year we have a "two-time" Teacher of the Year.  We congratulate Ms. Shelly Foster who was selected as the 2011 Teacher of the Year, and now was again selected by her peers as the 2017 Sequoia Elementary School's Teacher of the Year.  SW Hackett Lodge is very proud to assist in honoring her for her strong commitment to the education and welfare of her young students.

Wor. Jim Achenbach, PM, and head of the Partnership in Education committee for SW Hackett, introduces Principal Ryan Kissel.

Principal Kissel thanked Wor. Achenbach and SW Hackett Lodge for all its work with the Partnership in Education
program and especially with Sequoia Elementary School.  He then introduced Ms. Shelly Foster, and gave a bio of her
continual work with, and love for, her kindergarten students.

Shelly Foster thanked Principal Kissel, Wor. Achenbach and S.W. Hackett Lodge for this honor.
It was obvious to all that Ms. Foster is not just a teacher, but also a very caring person interested in
the welfare of her students and of all children.
