YAY CANDACE LEONARD! Candace Leonard, teacher of the deaf and hard of hearing, is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored Candace recently.

YAYWORTHY— Nominator Becky Birckhead of Glen Allen Elementary School said: “Candace is always willing to help anyone with a smile on her face. She has worked very hard to make sure that all of our deaf and hard of hearing students have access to their interpreter during virtual learning. This has been a difficult task. She’s been able to help me with the technology and helped to problem-solve many issues.”

Adds Vijay Jain: “Great teacher!”

Thank you for all you do, Candace, to make a positive difference and move HCPS forward!
