“Ms. Boyd is one of my all-time favorite teachers. She supports her students in many ways. She supports her students by always being there for us. From my academics to adjusting to high school, she has always provided the support that her students need. In our class we present many projects, and Ms. Boyd gives the support and help her students need for success. She has led her students to massive improvement throughout the year. Her teaching and lessons lead students to success in their education. She teaches us to self-advocate for our needs in life. She makes her students excited for class and keeps them engaged for lessons. I am proud to have Ms. Boyd as a teacher.”
Trent Strong, Laurel Lane Elementary School
“If Mr. Strong had a personal mantra it would be “I’ll take care of it!” And he does! Any time I’ve ever asked Mr. Strong to help me with anything, that is always his response. Most recently, Mr. Strong truly went above and beyond when one of our Bright Beginnings parents got a flat tire in the parking lot. Without hesitation, Mr. Strong took care of it! Aside from his work ethic, Mr. Strong has a positive attitude every day at school, never complaining about what is asked of him. He sets such a positive example for our students about working hard and being a team player. Mr. Strong is so deserving to be recognized as a Hero of Hope!”
Roxanne Lovelace, Matoaka Elementary School
“Ms. Lovelace is beyond deserving of the title “Hero of Hope.” Her students are at the forefront of everything that she does, and she cares so deeply about their happiness and success. She works so diligently to make sure they are getting what they need. In addition to her role as a special education teacher, Ms. Lovelace is an integral part of the school community, and her positive demeanor is so inspiring. Everyone at Matoaka is so lucky to have her as colleague and a friend!”
