Foster Park Elementary School just announced its December Teacher and Staff Member of the month. Each month, the school recognizes two staff members who go above and beyond for their students. These faculty members are nominated by and voted on by the other teachers and faculty members in the school.

The December Teacher of the month is Mrs. Jackie Burton. Her colleagues say that she "is devoted to her students! She gives her all to them!" She "loves her students as if they are her own children. She is always willing to help other teachers when it comes to IEP or Special Education questions or concerns. She always makes time to help others, no matter how big or small the problem is." Mrs. Burton "always goes above and beyond in the classroom to educate our kids! She is one who shares the classroom with her assistants, allowing us to be creative too!"

The December Staff Member of the Month is Mrs. Shelby Alexander. Her colleagues say she "has done an amazing job of organizing Christmas adoptions and Eagle Zone. She does whatever she can to help everyone at Foster Park—whether it's covering a class so a teacher can attend an IEP meeting or working with a student who needs a break. She always keeps a positive attitude when helping others." She is "so caring and always has our students' best interest at heart. She is so devoted to showing love and support here at Foster Park." Mrs. Shelby is "supportive of others and always willing to lend a hand to those around her! She is a great role model for ALL our students. She is generous and selfless. She is irreplaceable! We are so lucky to have her at Foster Park". Shelby has " a heart for these kids. She pours her heart and soul into whatever she can to make their lives better. She is a great team player!"
