Congratulations to Kellie K., our Stellar Educator of the Week. Kellie was nominated by a colleague who shared with us her amazing skills and talents, and why she deserves recognition as a Stellar Educator:
"Kellie is an amazing teacher! She has grown tremendously as a teacher, and she is known for never letting things get the best of her. No matter what problems come up, she goes through the day steadily and she handles issues without complaint. She amazes me by how much her students have grown with her! She teaches in Flint, Michigan where there is over 90% free and reduced lunch, and our students come to school working below grade level, and often without even basic necessities of life. She has done an amazing job with these kids! She is a great teacher and friend!"
Kellie told us that her philosophy as a teacher is simple: a child-centered approach. "I strive to create a warm learning community where I challenge each child to achieve." That alone tells us she is an awesome teacher!
Thank you, Kellie, for your hard work and for the way you put your students first. The Educator’s Room thinks YOU are a Stellar Educator!
