☷ City of Germantown Tennessee - Excellence Honored at Annual Education Celebration

City of Germantown , state Tennessee

   On April 27 , after a two year hiatus due to the pandemic , the Germantown Education Commission hosted the annual education celebration where students
    and teachers were honored for excellence . Administrators , teachers , students , parents and members of the Germantown Board of Mayor and Aldermen were in attendance .  
   The 2022 Marjorie Ree - pee Memorial Teacher of the Year Award , generously sponsored by the Leadership Germantown Alumni Association , was presented to Ms . Nicole Chrestman . Ms . Chestman is a Psychology and Advanced Placement Psychology teacher at Houston High School . She has a true passion for her subject and has worked diligently to evolve and build the school ' s psychology program into something remarkable .  
   When students walk into her classroom , most immediately feel comfortable . While the classroom sets the stage for creativity , conversation and learning , it’s the teaching inside that room that puts students on the path to success . Ms . Crestman is passionate about using different avenues to hold her students’ attention and guide them to greater achievements . She uses games , open discussions , group activities , experiments , surveys and other interactive methods to keep her students engaged . She applies real - life examples to her lessons to keep her students invested in the subject matter . Her positive attitude and sincere love for her students shines through in all her interactions , whether they ' re during lessons or in the hallway between classes .  
   Another key to Chrestman’s success is empathy . She understands that high school students often have many things going on in their lives , such as sports , jobs , college applications and challenges at home or in their relationships . To build rapport and serve as a role model , this teacher shares with students her personal story about her battle with Multiple Sclerosis . “It’s important for my students to see me face this challenge head - on and try to remain optimistic each day , ” she said . “I want to try to be a model of encouragement for my students . If you remain positive and work hard , your students will follow suit . ”
   And along those lines , her advice to other instructors is to always remember the value they have in their students’ lives . “You never know - your smile and words of encouragement might be the only ones your students see or hear that day . There is always room and time to make a difference in a student’s life , ” she said .  
   The 2022 Youth Excellence Scholarship was awarded to Brooke Story , a senior at Briarcrest Christian School . Not only is Brooke ' s academic performance exceptional , but the way she conducts herself in the classroom and among her peers is even more impressive . She approaches her schoolwork with self - discipline , drive and a positive attitude , eager to help other students learn and even supporting her teachers with encouraging notes .
   Brooke embodies leadership and teamwork . She credits the Animal Explorers Camp at the Memphis Shelby County Humane Society - where she served as a counselor - as a strong factor in her emotional growth . At this camp , children learn to care for various animals . As a counselor , this student organized activities and maintained a safe environment for the campers to interact with dogs . She had to be prepared for any emergency while also communicating in a relatable manner with the young campers . “This opportunity enhanced my appreciation for the curiosity of youth , ” she said .
   As expected , this winning student has a bright future , having recently accepted an appointment to West Point Military Academy , where she hopes to major in kinesiology and continue to thrive academically . As for the rest of her future , she says , “After my four years of study at West Point , I will be a commissioned Second Lieutenant in the United States Military . The Army will select my branch and I will travel wherever I’m told in order to carry out my time in active duty . Though I won’t have complete control over where I will serve or what I will be doing , I will continue to work hard and strive for excellence . ”
   The Education Celebration is the culmination of the Education Commission’s work which includes selecting monthly teacher and student award winners and the Battle of the Brains competition .
