Sarah Steele, School Counselor at Trailside Point School, was selected by the Anti-Defamation League as the 2017 Arizona Educator of the Year.

Under Sarah’s direction, the Anti-Defamation League has seen great strides and a true commitment to integrating No Place for Hate activities through classroom discussions, family interaction and campus beautification.   She is creative in planning and engages students in the No Place for Hate activity process. Additionally, she collaborates with teachers and staff to incorporate No Place for Hate in ways that support their classroom priorities.  Sarah and her student team envision activities and then package them into simple, but complete packages for classroom teachers.

Laveen’s Governing Board recognized her at their September meeting and presented her with a plaque.
