'Each day a new beginning'

Laurel Hill School Principal Susan Lowrey-Sexton said Welsh's innovation in the classroom is partially what led to her peers selecting her as the school's Teacher of the Year.

"She has the most cheerful and cooperative approach, with each day a new beginning for uncommon patience and understanding," Lowrey-Sexton said.

"She is a regular volunteer for service to others across the school, cooperating with other teachers in projects or planning for great things to happen in her class."

Fifth-grader Charley Beck put it more succinctly.

"She's great," he said. "We get to do a lot of different stuff with her."

However, Welsh gave credit to Charley and his classmates.
