The first week in May saw us continuing our successful and rewarding Teacher Recognition Program, where we were honored to recognize a teacher at Emilie Ritchen School.
On May 2, 2017, the Rotary Club of Oxnard was pleased to recognize Mrs. Tammy Smith, a dedicated Extra Support teacher at Emilie Ritchen Elementary School in Oxnard.  She currently teaches science to all 2nd-5th grade students.  Students and staff enjoy hands-on activities that they are engaged in while they learn science. Mrs. Smith can be counted on to be part of School Committees, to help students, other staff members, and parents. She always goes above and beyond her regular duties. She tutors students after school in the areas of math, language arts and ELD, who attend the After School Program.  Outside school, she is a busy mother of five, coaches kids' Soccer and Track and Field, and still finds time for herself.  Ritchen is fortunate to have such a dedicated teacher as Tammy Smith.
