Through her passion for teaching, Ms. Pewe accomplishes the above on a daily basis. She is a champion of student success. She works closely with parents to ensure they are well informed of their student’s progress and accomplishments.

She is a highly effective instructional leader who consistently looks for ways to support colleagues through collaboration across all grade levels

She exhibits strong and natural interpersonal skills and uses those skills to inspire others to be more effective communicators
