Karen Daugherty, preschool assistant teacher at Earlington Elementary and West Hopkins, received the new 20/20 Vision Award during the Board of Education meeting on March 3. Karen demonstrates service excellence in all she does! She has a commitment to Team Hopkins, a positive demeanor, and student-centered service. Early in the year, the Earlington evening preschool bus route needed a monitor … Karen accepted the temporary assignment without hesitation. She seized the opportunity and truly made the bus an extension of the classroom. She provided interventions, taught kindergarten readiness skills, and took the time to make deeper personal connections with children and families. When the monitor position was filled, she had a difficult time letting go. She has truly embraced our 20/20 vision. Karen takes the time to read every child’s story and helps them add new pages every day!
