#701 Staff 'High Fives'

Congratulations Holly Watson! She is Belair's nominee for JCPS Staff Appreciation Breakfast - Mrs. Watson has been teaching for 20+ years and is still flexible when it comes to learning new things. She has a remarkable handle on classroom management and developing positive relationships with her students. It is not out of the ordinary for past students to either come visit or write fond memories of being a part of her classroom. Coworkers, students, parents, and student teachers always have great things to say about her. Mrs. Watson is someone that takes a lot of pride in teaching students. We are glad she is part of our 701 family!

Let me know if you have a special "shout out" or "high five" you would like shared!

Good Reading.....
