πŸ‘ How about a round of applause for a teacher who’s a cut above? πŸ’‡β€β™€οΈ βœ‚οΈπŸŒŸ πŸŽ‰πŸŒŸ We are thrilled to announce that Mrs. Lindsey Cartwright, Second-grade teacher at Noel Primary School, has been named the McDonald County Schools Teacher of the Month for February! πŸŒŸπŸŽ‰ 🍎 Mrs. Cartwright's incredible dedication to her students and her heartwarming act of kindness truly embodies the spirit of excellence we cherish in our district. Her principal, Denisa Douthit, beautifully captured her impact: "Mrs. Cartwright is such a natural born teacher... She has made a point to form connections with not only her students but their families as well." πŸ«πŸ’– πŸ’‡β€β™€οΈ Douthit says Mrs. Cartwright - a former hairstylist - noticed one of her students feeling self-conscious due to his appearance. Without hesitation, she offered to give him a haircut, bringing smiles and confidence to the student and his family. This act of kindness exemplifies Mrs. Cartwright's compassion and dedication to her students' well-being. πŸŒˆβœ‚οΈ Mrs. Cartwright was recently surprised in her classroom with flowers, gifts, and heartfelt congratulations from McDonald County School leaders! 🌸🎁✨ A huge thank you to our sponsor, Veregy LLC., for their generous support in recognizing Mrs. Cartwright's outstanding contributions to our school community! πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸŽŠ 🌟 Join us in celebrating Mrs. Cartwright's outstanding achievement and the positive impact she makes on every child, every day, whatever it takes! πŸŽ‰πŸ‘
