2014 Presidents' Award Winner - Congratulations to Michelle Ruff, the winner of the 2014 Presidents' Award. Michelle is a 5th grade teacher at Cloverleaf Elementary in Statesville, NC. On her application, Michelle explained why she wants to attend the Elementary School Conference. "Every time the opportunity comes up to go to a training or workshop, I jump at the opportunity to go because it recharges my 'battery!' I go back into my classroom with this new energy and wisdom and start applying it to my teaching immediately so that I can start helping my students with my newfound wisdom." It was a pleasure meeting Michelle at the 2014 conference!
