Yay of the Day awardee, Rhonda Martell of Glen Allen High School, receiving her swag Bag.

YAY RHONDA MARTELLA! Rhonda Martella of Glen Allen High School is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored the teacher recently at Glen Allen.

YAYWORTHY: Nominator Kendra Holeman said: “She goes out of her way to help my daughter feel comfortable and safe at school, and is making a difference in our lives every day. My daughter suffers from type one diabetes and anxiety. Just getting to school is hard for her. Mrs. Martella has walked her to class to help her calm down. She has advocated for daughter to her teachers, and has been there for my daughter and me every day for more than two years. My daughter is not a number, and she cares about her and her future. She has become a part of our village.”

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