Yay of the Day awardee, Ashley Nelson of Ward Elementary School, receiving her swag bag.

YAY ASHLEY NELSON! Ashley Nelson, an innovative learning coach at Henry Ward Elementary School, is today’s “Yay of the Day” honoree. Superintendent Amy Cashwell honored her recently.

YAYWORTHY: Nominator Taylor Allen said: “She always works hard to ensure that student learning is multidimensional, engaging and involves the six C’s! She encourages mindfulness and shares the benefits of breath work — as well as social and emotional learning — with staff members and students. She does this while incorporating 21st Century skills into lessons and schoolwide programs.”

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