YAY NICOLE SHORT! Nicole Short of Brookland Middle School is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored Nicole recently at Brookland.

YAYWORTHY— Nominator Christian Washington said: “She always exhibits grace and class in the workplace. She’s more than a teacher — she is an administrator, a friend and an amazing person. She helps inside and outside the school, and puts her absolute all into improving Brookland and the environment around her. She teaches us so much about ourselves and how to learn to appreciate ourselves.

A great example is when she taught us about black narratives and how we should appreciate our natural features. She told us about our real culture and heritage and let us know who we really are. This gave us all a new sense of well-being, and we wore our natural hair like crowns.”

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