Excellence in Education: Holman Middle teacher recognized for compassion, patience

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A Henrico middle school teacher is being praised for her compassion, patience, and positive attitude for this month's Excellence in Education award.

Susan Chamberlin, a Holman Middle School math teacher, was nominated by a former student who said Chamberlin always makes sure the class had fun while learning.

In fact, she's is quite popular with a number of students.

That's part of the reason why Chamberlin was also recently named the school's Teacher of the Year.

"Mrs. Chamberlin inspires me by always keeping a positive attitude. In class she's always patient and cared about how we were doing," wrote the student who nominated Chamberlin for NBC12's award.
