On April 18th we sponsored an award for the Hilliard Lyons Excellence Awards ceremony. We nominated Smyrna Elementary School teacher – and member – Ms. Candice Hardin. Ms. Hardin’s teaching style helps her students find their identity by instilling the confidence in them that leads them to believing in themselves.
Her classroom is highly interactive with students doing affirmations, chants and cheers to help them understand that they are powerful and can do work to perform at a higher level and succeed. Her personal classroom motto is “Come as a student, leave as a leader.”
Candice had also recently been selected as our Hero of Education last year.
