Your September '23 ALL Stars

Your September '23 ALL Stars

At the beginning of the month, we announced that you could nominate any Avon Schools employee who you feel embodies our mission: ALL belong, learn, and grow. You nominated 61 staff members, a volunteer, a team, and a therapy dog — It's true! — and we have shared your encouraging comments with them.

Here's just a sample of your comments about the many ways these ALL Stars make our mission a reality:

  • "[She] is an absolute gem! My oldest daughter had her for 5th grade, and I really cannot say enough good things about her. ... She lifts lifts her students up and makes sure they know their worth. She is the best teacher ever. My daughter says she wants to be a teacher after having [her], so she can have the same impact on children's lives."
  • "He is ready and willing to help with any student in the building that needs help. His knowledge about what students need and why is such an asset to our building. He ALWAYS takes the time to build a relationship with students so they know they are in a safe environment. We would be lost without [him]."
  • "She has embraced the team-teaching model to help teachers belong, learn, and grow along with the students."
  • "[She] finds greatness in each and every student we serve."
  • "[He] goes above and beyond for the students and tries to meet them where they are. He’s kind, loving, patient, and has an ENORMOUS heart. My son absolutely loves [him]."
  • "[She] is always on time to drop off and pick up my wheelchair-bound student. She is always cheerful, friendly, and positive! She has built a great relationship with my student and her family. ... I truly think she has found her calling and is a great asset to Avon Schools!"
  • "[She] has been volunteering in my classroom every Tuesday for 11 years! She began volunteering when I had her grandson in kindergarten, and she was looking for volunteer opportunities after the loss of her husband. Well, 11 years later, she is still coming to help the students and staff every Tuesday."

We are grateful for our ALL Stars. Be sure to watch for the October nominations to open in just a couple of weeks. Let's keep the positivity and encouragement flowing!
