August is QDR’s Gold Star Teacher Appreciation Month! Meet today’s featured teacher: Lauren Keadle of Cary Elementary School!
Lauren was nominated by Carrie who said “She creates a calm but fun atmosphere for learning, always expecting the most from the children, but investing the time so she knows how to best reach them. Speaking of knowing her students, she’s been known to invest many outside hours attending her students’ sporting events, cheering them on outside of school. She truly cares about the students as people and learners. She works hard to create a community of learners who are met at their level but also a community of “friends” who pay attention to their peer’s positive contributions to the classroom. Over and over, she goes above and beyond to recognize that her second graders are still children first, and she maintains that joy in their educational experiences.”
Thank you so much for inspiring those around you Lauren!
As our featured Gold Star Teacher of the Day for August 14th, Lauren has won a $25 gift card to Crabtree Valley Mall and a 1-year Black Card Membership to Planet Fitness which grants you access to any of their 1,700+ locations, guest passes, use of massage chairs, tanning and more!
She’ll also have the chance to win the Grand Prize – $1,500 to stock their classroom courtesy of Crossroads Ford in Cary.
