Stout named Canyon Ridge Intermediate Teacher of the Year

Sohailah StoutSohailah Stout may have been gifted in music, but she was determined to design and build things. If Oral Roberts University had a degree in architecture, she would have enrolled, but she settled for civil engineering. Stout was on track to graduate early when her heart forced a career change. The would-be engineer turned choir teacher was named the Teacher of the Year for Canyon Ridge Intermediate for 2017-2018.

“I love science and math and in the eighth grade, they (teachers) said ‘You do so well in science and math, you should be an engineer.’ Music was just something I did. I thought, ‘Everybody does music.’” 

Midway through her sophomore year of college, doubts about her career choice rose to the surface. She’s an energetic, commanding presence with a raucous, infectious laugh. 

“I was looking at the rest of the people who were engineers and they were super quiet and super studious,” she said. “I wasn’t sure this was for me.”   

Sanders named Centennial Elementary's Teacher of the Year

Lauren SandersMustang’s Centennial Elementary named Lauren Sanders, the school’s media specialist, as the 2017-2018 Teacher of the Year. This is Sanders’ 13th year to teach, all of them have been in Mustang. 

Sanders remembers no epiphany, no declarative moment when she knew teaching would be her career. She spent her teen years as a babysitter. She worked in the church nursery. She worked in Bible school. Her intention to become a teacher was always there; it had never been a decision. 

“I didn’t give it much thought,” she said. 

When she graduated from high school, Sanders got married to her high school sweetheart and attended college at the University of Oklahoma. Her student teaching was in a first-grade classroom at Mustang Elementary. She’s been with Mustang for 13 years, spending time in second through fifth grade classrooms at Mustang Elementary, Mustang Valley Elementary and now as the media specialist at Centennial Elementary.  

A note from Superintendent Dr. Sean McDaniel on the proposed April 2nd walk-out
Wednesday, March 7, 2018 Dear Bronco Family, I apologize for the late hour. Earlier today the Oklahoma Education Association, or OEA as we have come to know them, released information to the public calling for a teacher walk out and school closure that is scheduled for Monday, April 2nd. According to the OEA, the walk out and subsequent school closure is a protest against the Oklahoma State Legislature for its refusal to provide Oklahoma public school teachers with a raise for over a decade along with its inadequate funding of public schools. All of us will be impacted by a teacher walk out.  
Block named Teacher of the Year for Mustang Elementary

When Mustang Elementary’s Teacher of the Year, Melissa Block, graduated from high school she was headed for the medical field. She played “school” as a child, but her mother was a nurse and it was familiar. Block reasoned it would be a good career with good money where she would be respected. 

“I knew how it worked with my Mom but I was dreading clinicals. So when you’re dreading  going to clinicals one day a week so badly that my stomach would hurt, that was a sign.” 

Block took a break from school and entered the work force. She tried the insurance industry and working in medical records, but a sense of fulfillment was missing. 

When she made the decision to return to school, Block’s daughter had started kindergarten and was a struggling reader. There seemed to be a personality disconnect between the teacher and Block’s daughter. Requests for extra learning activities they could do at home went unanswered so Block set up her own system to help her child learn to read.
