Ms. Facklam doesn’t just teach art concepts, though. She teaches life concepts.’ Facklam spends significant time after school tutoring students, hosting art studios and helping students with scholarships, Brisko added. ‘Ms. Facklam does so many things outside of the classroom to help kids grow,’ he continued. Facklam will represent SCSD1 in the 2024 Wyoming Teacher of the Year competition.
