Compassion All-Star Terri Fox (4/19/17)

Angie DeAguiar, Betsy Perkins, Terri Fox, Deb Clemens After careful consideration, Terri Fox, Second Grade Teacher at Meadows Elementary, was selected as the Compassion All-Star of the month for March for her Respect and Compassion. Below, please find Terri's nomination written by fellow teacher, Betsy Perkins.
"I nominate Terri Fox for the compassion award of Respect. Terri is a skilled communicator and she demonstrates respect to each and every person that she comes in contact with; whether it be in class, through communications with parents or discussion and collaboration with her colleagues. In fact, I often look to her for advice or feedback regarding communication. Terri makes it a point to get to know her students and their families right from the start; She has high expectations for all students, she knows their strengths and she makes each feel like a super star for being who they are and doing their best. Her teaching colleagues know she is good listener and collaborator, but she is also a straight talker (and she is probably the most attentive staff meeting person I know). Don't bother trying to get gossipy with her, she just does not go there. I think one reason that Terri is such a great model of respect is because she has empathy for students, families and staff. I have always had great respect for this colleague and I proudly nominate her for this March Compassion Respect All-star!" - Betsy Perkins, Teacher, Meadows Elementary
