"Molly Oosterhof has worked tirelessly at Dimmitt for the last six years to make an impact in students' lives inside and outside of the classroom," said Gretchen Wenzl, a Dimmitt teaching colleague. "She created our quarterly sixth-grade PRIDE parties for students who meet or exceed school expectations. Students can go to the cafeteria and playground after school for art activities, sports, various games, movies, or just to spend time with friends. It really motivates students to improve at school because they have so much fun!"

"What sets Ms. Handugan apart at Chief Sealth is her drive. Teaching is something she has wanted to do her entire life and that is apparent every time she instructs a class or helps a student,' said Samara Hoolahan, a former student. "Ms. Handugan truly believes that starting youth off on the right path by providing support and knowledge as often as she can is how to help make the world a better place. It's a beautiful goal that nothing has ever hindered. Ms. Handugan has students of every grade, race and social class coming to her because she possesses a certain quality that you can both relate to and respect. It is impossible to be in her presence and not look at her as a role model. I have never met a student who was filled with anything but kind words and admiration for her."
