Teacher of the Year: Erin Enquist

Erin Enquist shines as a fourth-grade teacher at Mount View Elementary, celebrated for her exceptional commitment to student growth. She fosters a positive, supportive classroom environment, starting each day with optimism and unwavering support. 

Two years ago, Erin received life-altering news: a terminal diagnosis. This challenge was a turning point that deepened her commitment to education and her efforts to foster a culture of belonging in her classroom. 

Her philosophy is simple—every student deserves to feel that they belong and are valued, and she is committed to making that a reality.

Through her words and actions, Erin creates a classroom environment where all students know they belong. This motivates and empowers students to focus on learning and grow academically. Because of her health challenges, her dedication to her students is unmatched.

Join us in celebrating Erin Enquist, this year's Gold Star Award recipient for Teacher of the Year. Her resilience and compassion define the heart of a great educator.
