Give Kudos Where Kudos is Due

Pre-K 4 SA always wants to recognize our team’s success, achievements and efforts. We wanted to create a space for the team to give kudos to someone they believe is going above and beyond, exemplifying Pre-K 4 SA’s values and commitment to excellence. Check out these Kudos from January:

 

Kristy Herrera, Assistant Director of Professional Learning

“Kristy deserves kudos because she works tirelessly to make sure all the programs have her support! She makes herself available at all hours of the day, and is dedicated to her team. She helps people problem-solve and feel confident in their work. She’s a great leader!”

 

Brittany McCabe, Professional Learning Specialist

“Brittany deserves kudos because she is new to the team and jumped in right away, wanting to help and be part of the action! She’s volunteered to help fellow teammates and steps up to get things done.”

 

Cashelle Johnson, Head of Schools North Education Center 

“Cashelle deserves kudos because she represents the best we have to offer in the form of positive leadership, thoughtful relations, informed direction and providing full value to the students, families, and staff at Pre-K4SA because she operates from a place of fullness as evidenced by her positive interactions and wise decision making with everyone who comes in contact with her. She brings a sense of calm, wisdom, and positivity in each encounter. Education across our city would be transformed if there were more school leaders like Cashelle.” 

 

Testimonials

 

Tomeka Kuykendall, Parent Liaison-North Education Center

“A highlight of this school year so far has been our annual Celebration of Lights event that took place in December. This was the first year the North center did a “walk-through” event and it was such a success. We received over 100 culturally diverse posters that families created at home. Families created paintings, drawings, and creative displays of their families’ different traditions and cultural celebrations. Our family volunteers worked hard at creating colorful light displays throughout our outdoor play area. For me, it was wonderful to see our team and school community come together and create a memorable event for the families.

Morning arrival is my favorite part of my daily routine. Greeting the children and parents every morning with a “Good morning!” or “I’m happy to see you!” is a wonderful start to my day. I believe morning arrival is a great way to get to know the children and interact with families, and a familiar face makes the parent and child feel welcome and safe. 

I’m looking forward to families coming into the classrooms for Demonstration of Learning. It’s great to see the parents’ faces as they are presented with examples of what their child has learned this school year.”
