Dobbie Williamson
Teacher Assistant
Bagdad Elementary School

Dobbie is more than just an employee; she is a friend to everyone on our staff.  She works with students who have special needs on a daily basis.  She is an encourager, but also knows when to give that extra push to get the most from a student.  She sets high expectations for the students and doesn't settle for less.  She is always willing to lend an extra hand and fill in wherever she is needed.  She takes the initiative, not waiting to be told everything that needs to be done.  Dobbie looks for fun and creative activities to use with students.

Staff members talk about how she seems to brighten up the room.  She has a way of making a person cheer up when they are feeling down.   We describe her as a person who will try anything and even try a second time if she is unsuccessful at first.
