YAY KRISTINE LARA! Kristine Lara of Glen Allen Elementary School is one of today’s “Yay of the Day” honorees. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored her recently at GAES.

YAYWORTHY— Nominator Patti Connelly said: “She is the epitome of what a teacher should be. Mrs. Lara makes every child feel seen and heard, no matter how long it takes.”

Julee Martinez said: “She gives each student the support they need to succeed. Both my daughters have had Mrs. Lara., and both deal with different challenges. No matter what, Mrs. Lara dedicates her time to helping each one of her students. After having Mrs. Lara I am no longer concerned for my daughter to start middle school.”

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