August is QDR’s Gold Star Teacher Appreciation Month! Meet today’s featured teacher: Brandie Hayes of The Little School of Hillsborough!
Brandie was nominated by Sandra who said “My son has been at TLS since he was 4 months old. At about a year and a half old, we realized he had significant speech and language delays (which resulted in slight behavioral delays). We worked with TLS to get him established with a speech therapist which helped and continues to help. But the biggest impact by far was Brandie. She made huge efforts to ensure my son was able to participate with the class when his speech issues would have made that difficult or impossible without her help. She worked with his therapist to implement therapy-recommended actions in the classroom and did so in a way that all the children participated and enjoyed it so my son never felt singled out. She is 100% my son’s go to comfort person at school. Brandie did all of this without our family ever asking for anything. She identified my son’s needs and took the initiative to address them in a conscientious and loving manner. We are so grateful for her. She deserves to be honored for her commitment to children.”
Thank you so much for inspiring those around you Brandie!
