Great Dreams Need Great Teachers: Amy Siverd

“What a wonderful way to start the week,” remarked Amy Siverd after a surprise visit to her first-grade classroom on behalf of the Great Dreams Need Great Teachers campaign.

Elementary School Directors Sean Walker and Kathy Starr visited North Landing Elementary Nov. 6 to share with Siverd the letter submitted by a parent to praise the teacher for helping her son “go from a reluctant, struggling reader to a boy who loves to read.”

The parent also noted: “When you enter her classroom, you can feel the family and community that she has created with her students. We believe it is because of this relationship that Jake has been so successful and will continue to love learning and school.”

Before Walker gave Siverd a Great Dreams Need Great Teachers gift bag, he asked the first-graders what they thought was inside.


Instead, Siverd received two movie passes thanks to campaign sponsor Beach Cinema Alehouse.
