EVSC teacher receives Cause for Applause Award

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - One EVSC teacher is being praised for helping her students far beyond the school-day hours.

Speech-language pathologist Jamie Smith received the Cause for Applause Award.

She was nominated by one of her students, who she helped during summer vacation.

Smith said she considers it part of the job to teach her students no matter the time of year.

"It's just, you build a rapport with your students and I really want them to meet with success in every speaking situation, so I'm just making sure they know I'm there for support," Smith told us.

Smith said the award makes her feel like her work is appreciated.

Celebrating with her students, she said, made getting the award even sweeter.
