In a surprise celebration on Tuesday, May 15th Shawna Randolph of Walnut Elementary School received the June Teacher of the Month recognition award! Ms. Randolph is a 5th grade teacher at Walnut Elementary, where she has been an instructor for the last six years and counting.
Ms. Randolph Is a budding educator whose calm presence, forward thinking, relationships with students and staff and ability to assimilate new information for the benefits of students has made her a teacher to admire.
