  • Chateaux School - Ms. Fairchild

    by Chateaux Year Published: 2018

    This is Ms. Fairchild’s fourth year here at Chateaux School.  She has two children who also attended our district and her favorite color is purple.  Her partner will say and all of Chateaux will agree that she is an “awesome” teacher!  She is caring and loving and treats all of her students as if they were her own.  Her partner says that she is the “Robin” to her “Batman” which is always evident as you see them dressing alike on theme days with t-shirts that display motivating or funny quotes just because they want to motivate their students and show great team and school spirit.  Ms. Fairchild is a shining example of how motivation and a caring spirit can motivate students to learn!
