Nomination for Kristy Dube As a Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Dube is the teacher that everyone hopes their child receives. Each child who has her as a teacher receives special attention and is celebrated for their accomplishments. Her passion for learning is infectious and students excel in her classroom. As the 2020 Penobscot Teacher of the Year, Mrs. Dube was recognized by the state of Maine as one of the top educators in the state. Her devotion to creating a strong foundation of education for students is seen in all of her actions. Mrs. Dube offers fun Math and reading programs for her students with family and school department involvement. Recently she held a mystery reader program that featured fifteen guest readers who gave clues as to their identity for students to guess. This program excited students about literature as well as provided opportunities for critical thinking. During the pandemic, Mrs. Dube offered summer enrichment opportunities for students in Kindergarten through grade three to enhance their understanding of science and math. It is an honor to nominate someone for this opportunity who gives so many opportunities to the students of our school department.
