    And it’s that attitude that caused him to want to become a teacher in the first place.

    But what you’ll definitely find is a teacher who is passionate about helping her students become passionate about learning.

  • Marilyn Basford, a paraprofessional at Gadsden Elementary Magnet School and the Gadsden County School-Related Employee of the Year, blushes a little when she’s congratulated for winning the honor. She’s quick to tell you...she just loves children.

    Vickers went in for a regularly scheduled mammogram last October, and was called in for a second one. Then she received a call asking her to come in for a sonogram. The day after that, her doctor called again, asking her to come in to the office.
