“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.”
What makes a teacher unforgettable? Is it what she teaches her students? Is it how she cares for each one as an individual? Is it because she creates a positive learning environment with opportunity for curiosity and discovery? Or is it her corny jokes and wicked sense of humor?
CHA’s 5th Grade teacher, Pam Green, is unforgettable for all of these reasons and so many more. On May 11th the Chatsworth Porter Ranch Chamber of Commerce acknowledged her with one of the Unforgettable Educator Awards given out that night. The Chamber recognizes teachers, principals, and volunteers from schools in the Chatsworth and Porter Ranch area who have made outstanding contributions to their school community.
The evening included a video tribute from other CHA teachers, students, and staff. Ms. Green addressed the guests from schools across the Valley and thanked everyone for their support and encouragement.
Ms. Green has been a teacher at CHA for 20 years and each year continues to inspire and nurture the success of her students. Whether she is explaining the laws of motion by having the students create a marble run, facilitating discussions on the issues that are bugging them in preparation for the Exhibition project, or spending one on one time with a student to make sure they are doing ok, Ms. Green is a dedicated and caring educator.
Ms. Green invests extraordinary time and resources into the school program. She is often found on campus over the weekend taking care of the animals in our sanctuary and prepping the program for the coming week. She attends school plays, PTSO events, and leads the Lower School Student Council through the planning of school events. She gives endlessly to her students and to our school community.
Congratulations Ms. Green for a well-deserved award!
