County educators named winners of 2014 Jack Harvey honors


Faith James, third- and fourth-grade teacher, Brock Elementary School

“Faith James works hard every day to make Brock ISD a great place for our students and community. She is a dedicated, compassionate teacher who fosters confidence within her students and inspires them to reach their full potential. She teaches her students to strive for excellence, to love reading and writing, and to respect each other. Faith believes every child is entitled to an enriched education. Her willingness to work with others impacts all who come in contact with her. She is a dynamic educator who leads by example and encourages staff members to give their best daily. It is with great pride that Brock ISD chose Faith James to represent our district as a Jack Harvey Fellowship Award recipient.”

Marylynn Roever, early literacy teacher, Garner ISD

“Marylynn Roever is a career teacher with many years’ experience with primary grade children. She teaches early literacy at Garner, emphasizing phonics, spelling, reading, grammar, and writing to her first- through fourth- grade students. Mrs. Roever’s dedication to her students is unsurpassed. She is a true master teacher, utilizing her vast knowledge and experience to consistently bring out the best in her students. It is always a joy to visit her classroom because she has something fun happening that her students enjoy and benefit from. She makes time for each and every one of her students. She is so generous with her time and resources. She brightens everyone’s life in unique and thoughtful ways. She is a treasure to work with and an inspiration to her colleagues and family.”

Nicole Andermann, seventh-grade math teacher, Millsap ISD

“Mrs. Andermann is an exemplary teacher because she has an unmatched dedication to helping her students succeed, in math and in life. She has the highest expectations for her students and helps them reach heights they could not reach without her. Her students know from the first day in her class that they will be challenged: Not learning is not an option under her tutelage. She can be seen every day before school helping a classroom full of students master the intricacies of seventh-grade math as well as volunteering after school to help students from other grade levels. This is but a sampling of the reasons that the students and our campus are very fortunate to have Mrs. Andermann at Millsap Middle School.”
