To some students, school comes natural. To others, like some of Oxford Learning Center’s sixth graders, this is not always the case. However, learning subjects such as math, science and english have become much easier thanks to OLC’s new program, “Step-Up” and new teacher, Danielle Little. In regards to Little’s exceptional teaching ability in just her first year and all of the hard work put into the program making it a success, the Oxford School District awarded her with the Outstanding First Year Teacher Award.
Little has made it a priority to provide her students with a comfortable and motivational learning environment, which encourages them to never give up, no matter how discouraging school may be. Regardless of some of the issues a variety of Little’s students deal with inside and outside of the classroom, high expectations have been set for her students and the program since day one. Little is humbled that her colleagues and the school district have noticed her hard work and passion for educating young kids so early in her career.
