2021 Extraordinary Educators: Heidi Davis
Great communities have great schools. High Point Schools Partnership creates impactful connections between our schools and the wider community to ensure students and their families are supported and can reach their full potential in High Point schools.
Part of High Point Schools Partnerships’ mission is to improve the image of our schools through storytelling. Who better to tell the stories of High Point’s schools than the people experiencing it first-hand? In this series of eight articles, we will highlight our 2021 High Point Extraordinary Educators as we dive deeper into what keeps them motivated in the face of constant challenges.
Heidi Savis has been teaching at Welborn Academy of Science and Technology for one year but has made an impression in her short time. She chose to come to this school because of the principal, who “transformed my previous school (Union Hill) from ‘F’ to ‘C in just five years.”
Shayla Savage, the principal of Welborn Academy, describes Ms.Davis as “fair and has high expectations for her students as well as herself.”
According to Savage, during ESOL classes, Ms.Davis teaches her students to become critical thinkers, problem solvers, and lifelong learners.
Ms. Davis says “The best part about every day is the opportunity to interact with and encourage young people.”
Mrs. Davis has demonstrated effective leadership that cohesively threads her students,
parents, and educators. Though differences exist in their background, languages, learning styles, academic and social needs, Ms. Davis’ strives to meet each student’s unique requirements.
Mrs. Davis is positive and upbeat and a true team player. She goes above and beyond to ensure that Welborn is a great place for her students to learn. She also serves as a model classroom for other ESOL teachers in the district as she has presented on the local and national level. The leadership, high expectations, and commitment to excellence she exhibits in the classroom are extraordinary.
Her mother inspired her to become an educator.
Ms.Davis is just one of High Point’s 2021 Extraordinary Educators. Tune in for the next few weeks to hear more stories and critical moments from our local teachers!
