WVPB’s Education Director Maggie Holley presented the award during an all-school assembly organized just for the occasion. Sander told WVPB that she wants to make her classroom a place to build positive relationships. 

“When students enter my classroom, I want them to feel respected and loved so that they can carry these feelings of worth into other aspects of their lives,” Sanders said.
