Annette Marchant has an unbounded energy that can best be described by two professions she might otherwise rock in another life: dancing queen and cheerleader. Peruvian Park Elementary gets a kick out of Marchant’s propensity to bust a move whenever music is played, but they know that any time a colleague achieves success their favorite teacher will be the first to jump up and cheer. Her enthusiasm works with students. The reading rates of her students has skyrocketed since the start of the school year. Now Peruvian Park Elementary is excited to cheer for Marchant as the school’s 2018 Teacher of the Year.
