Northwest Nazarene University congratulates Miss Shalene French who has been awarded Educator of the Year by the Idaho Middle Level Association.
Miss French began her career in education as an eighth grade math teacher and then moved into administration at Rocky Mountain Middle School. As a master’s degree graduate in administration from NNU, French took the initiative to assume leadership of the failing Rocky Mountain Middle School and put a plan into action that awarded the school “New School Status” while in the process of attaining her doctorate.
Shalene French’s passion for middle-school children shines through everything she does, and she continues to be an inspiration to her fellow faculty members. Kenneth Moeller, a coworker of Miss French’s, said, “Shalene is positively the best—a beacon of light if you will—in a field that truly needs its stars to shine.”
