Congratulations to Kathy Kelenis, Howard Early Childhood Center Teacher Assistant, for being selected as the Spotlight on Excellence honoree for the month of August!  She was nominated by Kathryn Dean, Howard Mini Mules/PPCD Teacher.

"This year is Ms. Kelenis' 20th year at Howard ECC!  She goes above and beyond each day to provide quality care and instruction to our students.  She is thoughtful and perceptive, always seeking to understand each student, their strengths, their needs, and their zone of proximal development.  Ms. Kelenis truly treats every child as an individual while still holding high expectations for what they are capable of learning. Ms. Kelenis is warm and kind to the students.  She is a teacher through and through!

Ms. Kelenis is also incredibly consistent, reliable, and flexible. Whenever I request her help or ask her to do something, she jumps to it with a positive attitude.  She is mindful of how to help all the team members for the sake of the students.  Ms. Kelenis is pleasant to work with and reminds me to have a healthy sense of humor when working with 3-year-olds.  This is my second year to work with her in my classroom and I am so thankful for her support day in and day out. Our students and team are beyond blessed to have her with us!"
