As a parent of a Senior in high school back in Illinois, I am very grateful for all teachers who are having to adjust daily when it comes to teaching children. Our latest Crystal Apple recipient is not only adjusting to the ever changing conditions, but she is also giving her students the tools they need to succeed.
Kristine Carson is a 5th grade teacher at Jay Shidler Elementary. She has been teaching for many years and says times like these are not easy, but they are doing what they can to make things work. Here is what her nominee had to say about her:
“Mrs. Carson is a fifth grade teacher at Jay Shideler Elementary. She continually goes above and beyond for all of her students to ensure that they are all given the best possible chance to succeed. This includes staying late to work and plan as much as needed, and she truly cares about all of her students. She is willing to do whatever is needed to help every individual and does her absolute best to ensure everyone has the chance to succeed. “
Kristine will receive a Crystal Apple award, along with some nice prizes from PRAIRIE BAND CASINO AND RESORT Jay Shidler Elementary will also be in the running for a $1,000 donation, which will be awarded sometime in January of 2021.
