Roxhill Elementary teacher honored as “Hero in the Classroom”

Thanks to the folks at Roxhill Elementary School for sharing that photo of teacher Christopher Robert and this report about his big honor:

Congratulations to Kindergarten teacher, Mr. Robert, who was selected as a Symetra Hero in the Classroom! This program, which is sponsored by Bellevue-based Symetra Financial and the Seattle Seahawks, selects 24 out of the district’s 3,100 teachers each year and honors them for making a positive difference in the classroom. Mr. Robert represented Roxhill at the Oct. 18 Seahawks game versus the Cardinals, where he was honored on the field in front of 68,000 fans. Mr. Robert instills the joy of learning in his students. Through his exceptional gift as a teacher, his students achieve at a high level. Every child works hard to excel and feels such pride as they do so. The delight in his children’s eyes as they demonstrate that they can read, write and do math is magical and lights up a room! Through his guidance, modeling and instruction, Christopher also teaches his students how to become better citizens in our global society. Not only is he a Hero in the Classroom, but he also is a hero in the entire school. He provides incredible leadership and in a wide variety of ways, relentlessly works for excellence for all for every student. Mr. Robert is a true inspiration. We are so proud to have
him at Roxhill Elementary!
