Cheri Kelley

A BIG congratulations to Cheri Kelley, Music Teacher at Lacey Elementary - Our HP Rotary Teacher of the Month! 

Cheri was nominated by Aspen Clontz, 2nd Grade Teacher at Lacey Elementary. 

Cheri Kelley

"Cheri is the best because: 

  • She is an engaged listener. She will ask you about your students and follow up with the well-being of your family.
  • She gives friendly reminders of upcoming meetings and gentle nudges on schedule changes.
  • She plays the ukulele during school assemblies with a smile brighter than the sun!
  • She provides a gathering place on Friday mornings in her room with chocolate and breakfast for new teachers.
  • She follows up with union questions/concerns that staff may have.
  • She is a continuous learner and earned her National Boards to better meet the needs of her students.
  • She recognizes the vast diversity in our staff and celebrates how we each have amazing strengths to contribute.

Cheri goes above and beyond to acknowledge her colleagues, students, and school families. She advocates for everyone and shares a love for learning daily. She genuinely cares how you are doing and what she can do to help make a difficult situation better."

The Hawks Prairie Rotary recognizes that teachers regularly give of their time and their own money to serve their students. Their “Teacher of the Month” award is made in collaboration with NTPS. In addition to the recognition at their club meeting, Hawks Prairie Rotary generously awards each recipient with a $100 gift certificate intended to help him/her purchase supplies for their classroom.
