Celebrating Our 2024 Teachers of the Year: Mountain Road ES!

Celebrating Our 2024 Teachers of the Year: Mountain Road ES!

We’re celebrating one of our amazing school 2024 Teacher of the Year honorees each day …  Fifth-grade English language arts teacher Kristen Mitchell, a 16-year educator, is the Teacher of the Year for Mountain Road Elementary School!

“My son entered fourth grade as a struggling reader and writer,” shared the parent of a former student.  “He gave maximum effort to his schoolwork and fought hard to read on grade level prior to that year, but still lacked confidence in his abilities.  Throughout his year in Kristen’s class, she simultaneously encouraged him to believe in himself while pushing him to achieve his personal best as she equipped him with the tools he needed for success in the classroom.  When assignments were challenging for him, she would remind him of how far he had come and how hard he had worked.  He finished that year reading at a fifth-grade level with confidence in himself and his abilities.”
