Yay of the Day awardee, Torri Fields of Donahue Elementary School, receiving her swag bag.

YAY TORRI FIELDS! Torri Fields, a third grade teacher at Cashell Donahue Elementary School, is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored her recently at the school.

YAYWORTHY: Nominator Kathy Tuckwiller said: “Ms. Fields makes sure that parents and guardians are aware of everything that is going on in her class. She sends out pictures and videos of what they are doing … it enables us to have a meaningful dialogue with our students about what they’re doing in class instead of the ‘yes, no or I don’t know’ answers.

“She posts same-day activities so we can show our student that we know what they have done. She also keeps us informed about upcoming tests or other specific things we need to know. There’s really not a single reason for any of her parents not to know what is going on or what is expected of her ‘Class of Leaders.'”

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