Other nominees this week:

Staff Member: Melissa Culver

Melissa checked in multiple times after hearing that I was very stressed. Her words were very comforting & encouraging. I think many people in our building have experienced and appreciate Melissa’s kind and caring heart. She rocks!

Staff: Reading Recovery Team (Rebecca & Bethany)

From: Grace Clements

Bethany and Rebecca are always there to support me, offer guidance, suggestions, and provide resources and best practices to use in my classroom. They were both there during conferences to provide updates for my parents. Bethany and Rebecca both work so hard not only for the success of the children they work with, but for the success and growth of all the 1st grade kiddos. They are both the best at what they do!
