The Auburn School District Board of Directors recognized Debbi Capponi-Glidewell, fifth-grade teacher at Arthur Jacobsen Elementary School, for her outstanding service. Capponi-Glidewell believes preparing students to become part of a team, as well as individual thinkers and decision-makers, is one of her most important roles as a fifth-grade teacher. “As teachers we try to impress upon the students that they need to make the right decisions for themselves as well as understand how it affects others in society,” she said. … The board also recognized Amber Stanley, a senior at West Auburn High School, for being an outstanding student.
