Our Educator of the Year Award is presented by Staufer Team Real Estate, and each year, we’ve had the opportunity to recognize outstanding teachers who have dramatic impact on the lives of children in our community.
Elaine Huot retired from full-time teaching, in both the U.S. and Canada, and began a successful 20-year private practice in Superior, teaching students with learning differences, and offering academic assessments and support to parents and students as an educational advocate. She is a board member and educational advisor to the BVKID organization, Boulder Valley Kids Identified with Dyslexia, and is highly involved with our chamber.
More than 20 individuals – from colleagues to individuals impacted by her work – nominated Elaine for this award. One nominee said, 'Thank God for Elaine. She is a patient, understanding, and all-around phenomenal teacher. She provided our son what our neighborhood school could not. She normalized this journey my family is on and she makes our son understand that he has value and can learn.'"
