LISA REEDY

Lisa is a paraprofessional at Rawlins Elementary School, and this is her second year in our district.  Lisa is such a positive member of the RES staff!  She develops great relationships with the students she works with and is kind and compassionate with everyone she encounters.  She takes initiative to learn more about how to help the students she works with, and when faced with a challenge, she seeks out additional resources and spends extra time to overcome any obstacles.  Since she is always actively learning and is excited to show it, she is a great role model for all students and staff who work with her!  Similarly, she’s always willing to brainstorm and share ideas with others based on her knowledge and experience of working with students.  
 
It’s clear to everyone who works with her that she believes in students, and she shows them that she cares every day.  Thank you, Lisa Reedy, for your positive and never-give-up attitude!  It is greatly appreciated!
