Springfield Names Teacher of the Year

SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — Educators and administrators gathered to honor Springfield’s teacher of the year, fifth grade elementary school teacher Nicola Shaddon. She teaches at Page Elementary School.

The district says she has been very active in district technology. She regularly brings relevant and challenging science and engineering projects to her classroom.

She started the school garden, and the district says she’s a social and academic leader who serves students and families by believing that learning should be challenging fun and accessible to all.

“I think just seeing the excitement of learning for them and being able to be part of that is what I love most about teaching,” Shaddon said.

She’s also teaches class at Pacific University on science methods in elementary classrooms.
