Ms. Fils-Aime is a certified media specialist and was voted the 2023 Rookie Teacher of the Year by her peers at her school. Her dedication is unparalleled. She has always shown her commitment to her students, staff and parents. She is a media specialist who encourages her students to broaden their reading horizons to achieve ultimate academic success. This year she hosted a themed Beauty & The Beast Book Tasting event (she dressed up as Belle every day for a week!) This event exposed her students to different genres of books and had them ecstatic to go to the media center to check out the new titles they saw! Ms. Fils-Aime also wears many many hats at her school. Whether it’s helping someone with technology or assisting with testing one thing is true she is willing to help any and everyone with a smile. She is proud to be a part of the leadership team, literacy leadership team and racial equity committees. She also choreographs dances for her schools’ performances and instills her passion for the arts into her students by encouraging them to share their talents with the world. Ms. Fils-Aime currently has perfect attendance this school year and deserves a break! She loves a cruise vacation & there is no one more deserving!
