Suzy O’Connor of Tuckahoe ES

YAY SUZY O’CONNOR! Suzy O’Connor, a first grade teacher at Tuckahoe Elementary School, is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored her recently at the school.

YAYWORTHY: Nominator Jackie Smith said: “Ms. O’Connor goes above and beyond to help kids. She has a large first grade class of students who have very different abilities due to last year’s virtual learning. She makes school fun even for those who are behind. She has taken time to work individually with my son after school. He struggled with virtual kindergarten and is behind in his reading skills. He says tutoring is hard but he likes it because he sees himself making progress.”

Laughton Mikula said: “She is the nicest teacher. She gave us balloons to make a STEM project!”

Thank you for all you do, Suzy O’Connor, to make a positive difference and move HCPS forward!
