YAY KAREN WALKER! Karen Walker, a second grade teacher at Maude Trevvett Elementary School is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored Karen recently at Trevvett.

YAYWORTHY— Nominator Melissa Blanco said: “She handles herself each day with so much patience and grace. She is a bright light and provides a calm, safe atmosphere for her students in very trying times. At the beginning of virtual school, my second-grader was not comfortable onscreen. Mrs. Walker has shown such patience with the children in her class. She works hard each day to make them comfortable, allowing them time to adjust, yet also bundling their confidence and pushing them to persevere.”

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