Saint Mary School’s Suzanne Walzer is recognized by the ISBE

Saint Mary School is proud to announce that first-grade teacher, Suzanne Walzer, has been recognized by The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) with an award for Special Recognition in this year’s Those Who Excel Awards.

According to ISBE, “Educators presented with the Award of Special Recognition have connected with their school community and made a positive impact.” Those who work with Walzer, or have been in her class, have seen the amazing impact she has had first hand.

Walzer is committed to making sure all her students succeed. No matter what challenges she faces, she is always there to help every student. She supports each child in her classroom to grow academically and apply what they learn beyond the classroom. Most importantly, Walzer fosters a classroom environment that supports students in being kind and respectful to others. She has been a great mentor for many Saint Mary School staff members and a role model to her students. She is kind and is willing to go the extra mile to help wherever she can.

Walzer will be recognized by ISBE along with the other Those Who Excel & Teacher of the Year honorees at a banquet on May 18.

It is a great honor to have Walzer as a member of the Saint Mary School community. She is an excellent teacher, and Saint Mary School is incredibly lucky to have her to be part of the community. We are so proud of her for being recognized by ISBE and we know how deserving she is. Congratulations, Mrs. Walzer.
