Pine Street Elementary is proud to announce that Mrs. Kelli Hardigree has been selected as our 2021-2022 Teacher of the Year. Mrs. Hardigree is a kindergarten teacher here at Pine Street and this is her ninth year in District Seven. Each day Mrs. Hardigree goes above and beyond for the students in her class. She has a full plate at home with three children of her own, yet she is rarely absent from school and takes immense pride in making sure she meets the needs of her students. Mrs. Hardigree has a firm foundation and child development from her experience as a pre-school director at Westminster Day School prior to joining the Pine Street Family. Each day she is willing to share her knowledge not only with her students, but with her colleagues as well. She is a leader within her grade level and maintains a positive energy that others benefit from. Overall, Mrs. Kelli Hardigree is a shining example of what all teachers should aspire to be. Her work ethic and desire to help her students and team learn, grow, and build relationships is a true mark of a Teacher of the Year. Please continue to help us congratulate Mrs. Hardigree on this accomplishment in the year to come as she represents Pine Street School on the district stage.
During the middle of a pandemic, and the beginning of a new school year, who do you go to with all the questions? Let us answer this question for you, the NURSE!! Nurse Gilmore was unanimously selected as our Support Staff Member of the Year. Without one doubt, she has had more on her plate this year than any other during her entire career. Mrs. Gilmore started her career as a school nurse in 2019. Each day she is here early in the morning and stays late into the evening with all the additional paperwork this year has created. She tirelessly serves others and has the patience of a saint while ensuring each student, teacher, and staff member has exactly what they need. This year posed a challenge to even a veteran nurse; Nurse Gilmore has embraced the challenge head-on and put others before herself. As a school, we appreciate Nurse Gilmore and her dedication to our health, safety, and overall well-being in a way words cannot describe. Please help us congratulate her on being selected as Pine Street School’s Support Staff Member of the Year for the upcoming 2021-2022 school year.
