    Louise has been an exemplary member of the Elisabeth Morrow School faculty. She has a strong mastery of both her content area and pedagogy. She consistently develops her use of technology in the classroom, always striving to innovate and re-innovate her teaching strategies. She is an extremely selfless member of our faculty, regularly volunteering to teach extra classes and cover duties. It is highly evident that all of Louise's decisions are based on the answer to one question: what would be best for the learning and well-being of my students? Without question, Louise is an asset to our school community!
