Mrs. Buchanan was named MSP’s Teacher of the Year for 2019-2020. An eighth grade language arts teacher, Mrs. Buchanan works diligently to promote reading and writing with her students. She is not only their teacher but also their friend, who goes the extra mile when needed. Mrs. Buchanan’s students have had the opportunity to become more involved with the world around them through programs, such as an elephant rescue in Tennessee, a Rubik’s cube school challenge, and a new recycling initiative throughout the school. When asked, several of her students have said that Mrs. Buchanan inspires them to be better people. She never ceases her efforts to bring a fun and exciting atmosphere to her classroom, and that is also shown her in room’s flexible seating.
