FALLBROOK – Ann Brennan, an English language arts teacher who specializes in teaching English language development, was named as Potter Teacher of the Year for the 2013-2014

school year.

This year, a Potter record of 42 students qualified for reclassification based on their results on the California Standards Test, the California English Language Development Test, their academic grades, and their writing proficiency.

According to the 2014 estimated Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives, Potter grew to 81 percent of English learner (EL) students making annual progress this year. For students that have been in school five or more years, 76.3 percent of Potter EL students reached proficiency.

Beyond her incredible success with English learners, Brennan was also recognized for her leadership of the service-oriented Builders Club, a youth branch of the Fallbrook Kiwanis Club, which coordinates the annual school food drive, volunteers for school events, and arranges holiday visits for seniors.

That's amazing. Not only is this a tribute to Ms Brennan, but it's a tribute to the kids who are defying the negative expectations that they can't succeed. Congratulations to all! And thank you, Ann, for bringing your gifts to this community.
