Copperas Cove High School first-year math teacher Molly Wittmer has an enthusiasm for teaching. She is willing to try new instructional techniques to keep students engaged during the class period. When visiting her room, you can find her in the midst of the students talking to them about Algebra 1 and asking questions that make students think beyond the simple answer. Wittmer is part of the 9th grade team that embraced the mini-task lessons through the high school re-design and her students are definitely reaping the benefits, said Principal Miguel Timarky.

“Mrs. Wittmer spent hours above her normal work day to ensure every student is successful while trying to learn everything she needs to know as a first year teacher,” Timarky said, adding that her students knows she cares about them. “She builds trusting relationships with students in order to create a safe, positive and productive learning environment.
