Teacher of the Month - Lindsay Green

Our campus wants to recognize Lindsay Green as our Teacher of the Month for October. This is Lindsay's second year as a 4th grade teacher. She is the team's Lead PLC facilitator, and she served as the self-contained online teacher during our remote learning options. During the remote learning options, she showed professional pose and resilience in tackling the unknown. One of the online parents, Jennifer Crawford said, "Mrs. Green has done an outstanding, fabulous, and exceptional job these past 4 weeks. I could have not asked or prayed for a better teacher. She is phenomenal. BBE is so lucky to have her!"

Meet Lindsay Green. She graduated from California Polytechnic State University San Luis Obispo. This is her seventh year teaching and tenth year in education. Lindsay and her husband have two kids, a daughter in third grade at BBE and a son that will be joining BBE next year in PK. Lindsay loves golfing, fishing, running, and pretty much anything outdoors. She also enjoys wood working, and writing. One of her goals is to write a children's book one day. When asked what do you love about teaching a BBE she said, "What I love most about my job is my kids. Every day is an exciting adventure where we get to learn and grow together."

It is with High Honor that we celebrate Lindsay Green as BBE's' Teacher of the Month for October!!!
