Noyes Teacher Receives State House Honor

Fifth-grade teacher Michelle Archambault recognized Monday as a Massachusetts Teacher of the Year semifinalist.

Michelle Archambault's statement:

"I believe that students' educational attainment should not be restricted by individual differences. While holding high expectations for each student, I use differentiated instruction to address individual differences regarding abilities, needs, and goals. I am a strong advocate of flexible grouping in math. This approach is a response to the fact within any grade level, there is a wide range of math abilities.  In this model, I am not asking students to fit into a certain class, but designing groups based on student needs. The goal of each flexible group will target specific mathematical needs to ensure that all students master the essentials of each math unit."

Congratulations, Ms. Archambault! What a source of pride this should be for Sudbury. Sounds like this creative and customized approach to math resulted in a truly a well-deserved honor. We are lucky to have teachers like you!

My daughter was lucky enough to have had Ms. 'A' last year. She is an amazing, dynamic and caring teacher. At our first parent conference she amazed me by having completely figured out my daughters strength and weaknesses in 4 wks. It was no surprise to us to hear she had been nominated as teacher of the year. A well deserved award. Congrats Mrs. A!!!
