Celebrating Our 2024 Teachers of the Year: Knox ES STEM Academy!

Celebrating Our 2024 Teachers of the Year: Knox ES STEM Academy!

In honor of Teacher Appreciation Month, we’re celebrating a school 2024 Teacher of the Year each day!  Fifth-grade English language arts teacher Kara Gleason-Haynes, a 10-year educator, is the Teacher of the Year for Knox Elementary School STEM Academy!

“My daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia prior to coming into Mrs. G.H.’s class,” a parent of a former student shared.  “As a mother, I was very concerned that my daughter might never be able to read on grade level.  Even more, the thought of my daughter ever loving to write just really never entered my mind.  And then along comes Mrs. G.H.  She was so kind, thoughtful and loving to her students, and this overflowed into my daughter’s life.  My daughter not only started to love reading, but she also fell in love with writing as well.  And I give Mrs. G.H. the proper honor for being the light in my daughter’s life that was helping to show her the way.  To this day, the investment Mrs. G.H. made in my daughter’s life continues to live on.”
