DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -- The Wiregrass has a new Teacher of the Month, thanks to WTVY and All in Credit Union.
Phyllis Bolden at Dothan Prep named November's Teacher of the Month
Phyllis Bolden is a Behavioral Specialist at Dothan Prep, where she works mainly with 9th graders.
Ms. Bolden was nominated by a friend and member of her church, who says Ms. Bolden has a caring and positive attitude.
She encourages her students to respect themselves and others, while assisting them with coping strategies to help them be successful in the classroom and beyond.
Ms. Bolden said these are skills everyone needs, especially in today’s climate.
“I feel that it’s working very well. You develop these relationships and rapport with students that really blossoms and you turn around and you say wow from three months ago we’re doing pretty good! You try to help them to understand I’m not the enemy I’m here to help you. I’m here for you.”
