In addition to being an outstanding instructor, Mrs. Watson is an invaluable part of our staff. She is always willing to do whatever it takes and makes the best out of any situation that arises. In fact, one of the reasons I enjoy being around Mrs. Watson is that she always looks for the positive in any circumstance and maintains an attitude of flexibility that is a necessity for any teacher. Her colleagues highly respect her opinions and seek her input on a regular basis and she works collaboratively with everyone on staff.
Mrs. Watson’s students love her and they know she loves them. She invests in her students’ lives and is always concerned for their emotional, psychological, academic and physical well-being. Students trust Mrs. Watson and gravitate to her because of her compassionate demeanor. It always makes me smile when I hear Mrs. Watson refer to her students as “friends”-- “Come on, friends,” she says, “Do your best work!” She works continually to improve students’ self-esteem and self-control through positive encouragement, consistent discipline, and student self-reflective practices.
HCCD is blessed to have this incredible teacher on our staff! Congratulations, Mrs. Watson!
