Robin is 100% about her class.  She will do WHATEVER it takes for them to enjoy her class.  She also cares, deeply, for the adults in the school.   –Tara Hunt

Robin is the happiest person on this planet.  Students know that she loves and cares about them.  She is very flexible and willing to do whatever the team agrees upon.  I miss working with her. –Marlayne Harward

Robin, is a great example of handling stressful situations with calmness and dignity.  Whenever she speaks to a  student/parent she always does so in a respectful way. She naturally creates a learning experience for everyone involved. Thank you Robin for your example, you deserve this award. –Ien Richins

Robin is a blast to work with.  She always has a funny story to share about everything.  She is fun, outgoing, and young at heart.  She is easy to get along with and hard working.  She loves and cares for each of her students and goes above and beyond to show them how much she cares.  In turn her students all adore her and come back to see her because she makes such an impact on their lives.  Everyone who knows Robin feels like they are her best friend and if you don't know her you want to be her friend or have her as your teacher. – Melanie Ellsworth

She was born to be in a classroom.   She connects with the kids like I’ve never seen anyone do before.  They look to her as a teacher, a mother,  a confidant and an example.  She can take a student’s worse day and put a smile on their face better than anyone.  I’ve never heard her say she wishes she didn’t have “so and so” in her classroom. Even the most difficult student receives her genuine love…even if she wanted to duct tape them to their chair =)   She is a busy lady.  She has perfected the balance of being a working mother and professional in a way I can only be jealous of!   -Courtney Corbin
