About the Nominee:
Diane Rosebrough demonstrates daily, even in her way of thinking, that she truly cares for and lives for the children she educates. This thinking manifests itself in the programs she promotes, including the Belt program.
Many of Snively Elementary School’s students come from a disadvantaged background and receive hand-me-downs that don’t fit properly. Ms. Rosebrough recognized that the school had a unique need for belts to help the students hold their pants up so they could be less distracted and more productive in school.
The program is such a simple thing, but it's effective in showing the kids and parents how they can be presentable and how doing so is a priority!
