Calla Trusty

Calla Trusty

5th Grade Language Arts Teacher
Oxford Intermediate School

“When finding out I got this award, I was not only excited but shocked! The staff at OIS is truly amazing, and with me being a first-year teacher, they have taught me so much. Between my teammates, my ELA crew, the office staff, and all of the other brilliant teachers here, I can honestly say that I have not once felt like I was working alone. My students make my job easy! Their love for learning makes every single day the biggest blessing!”


The Oxford School District is proud to recognize Oxford Intermediate School teacher Calla Trusty as our Employee of the Week. Ms. Trusty helps make our district a great place to work and learn.

Here’s what Oxford Intermediate School has to say about Ms. Trusty:

“Although Ms. Trusty is a first year teacher, you would never know it! She has more respect from her students and colleagues than most veteran teachers. She provides a warm, caring, rigorous learning environment for students where they are encouraged to help each other while gaining confidence.”

“Absolutely amazing first year teacher. She truly possesses a gift for teaching and loves those kids. Even the most challenging of students responds to Ms. Trusty. They adore her!!!”

“Calla is a first year teacher who teaches like she has taught for years! She is such a sweetheart and loved by all.”

“I am so impressed with Ms. Trusty. For most teachers, that first year is just about keeping your head above water, but Ms. Trusty is already emerging as a leader. The work she did on the Read Across America team was awesome. Her genuine care for students is evident, and I expect to see even more great things from her.”

“Ms. Trusty is always working hard to create relationships with her students. She truly cares about the success of her children.”

“As a first year teacher, she embodies the patience and the work ethic of a seasoned employee. She is always going the extra mile for her students and takes the time to form a lasting relationship with them. She is PHENOMENAL at pulling the best out of every student that crosses her path.”

“Ms. Trusty is such a hard worker and puts so much into her job, this school, and her students. She goes above and beyond for this school and deserves recognition!”

“Miss Trusty is a first year teacher in the Oxford School district who gives OIS all that she has! I’ve never seen another first year teacher like her. She is constantly helping ALL students too, not only those in her class. Miss Trusty helps a student of mine study for her tests, and that student is always so excited to run and tell Miss Trusty her grade. I’m thankful for teachers like Miss Trusty!”

“Ms. Trusty instills confidence in her students and provides opportunities for her students to help each other. One would never know this is her first year teaching!”

“She exemplifies the qualities and characteristics that we want our students and teachers to have at OIS.”

Congratulations, Ms. Trusty! You’re a great representative of the #ChargerNation.
