On this episode of EduCatered Shawnee is joined by Deanne Marie Moyle-Hicks, a 4th grade teacher at Natchez Elementary school and the 2022 Nevada Educator of the Year. Deanne has almost three decades of experience in the classroom and is committed to her students. Seriously, committed. She drives 80 miles to school everyday in order to serve them.

Let’s listen in as they discuss rural diversity, moving with your students, what farming can teach you about leadership and more.

Students are just humans. They have feelings, struggles and challenges. It is my role to help them navigate the parts of life that are difficult for them to navigate.
