Teacher of the Month (September): Heather Kirk (Fourth Grade Teacher)
Reason Nominated: Heather has been a highly effective teacher for Legacy for some time and it’s challenging to ever walk in her class and find deficiencies. She is an incredible teacher that brings a positive attitude to school every day. She is a problem solver and quick to try new ideas and strategies with her students. What separated Heather this month is her work with our online students. She was an effective communicator with parents and embraced Schoology. She made herself available to families and her online students reaped the benefits of that without lessening her work with her in-person students.
Staff of the Month (September): Kelly Long (Paraprofessional)
Reason Nominated: Kelly is new to Legacy this year and she has jumped right in. She is quick to offer assistance outside of her job responsibilities, has an amazing attitude every day at work, and has quickly become appreciated and respected by her colleagues. Kelly’s best attribute is that she is a problem solver and jumps in to help whenever it’s needed. She has been an incredible asset to our team and we’re lucky to have her.
