Elizabeth Pruitt, Math Supervisor K-12, was presented a S.T.A.R. Award (Special Thanks and Recognition) on October 14th at the School Board Meeting. Ms. Pruitt was nominated by a high school teacher Taleese Walsh, who wrote:
I wanted to take a moment to speak about Liz Pruitt. I just learned that she is responsible for compiling math course “toolboxes.” These used to be accessible through the scope and sequence link, but were recently moved to Infinity. When I found they had been removed, I feared they were no longer available. I just wanted to break down and cry. Liz came to my rescue and had them emailed to me immediately. Entering my eleventh year of teaching, this resource is the single most valuable resource I have ever had as a teacher. To create these toolboxes I am sure would have taken Liz hours, over months and years. It would have been hard, grueling work, because the information isn’t easily found or compiled. I have told her thank you, but my thanks can’t be sufficient to the task and the work she has done on our district’s behalf. I just wanted to let you know that you have an employee of such merit in this district who adds real value to the lives of teachers, and consequently students, every day. I hope you can add to my thanks and recognition of her work.
