Bailey is truly a game changer. Her heart is bigger than any I have met. She care immensely for her students and volleyball players. Her kind spirit is second to none. "Give more than you take"... this phrase describes Bailey perfectly!
This gives me such joy but no surprise! I had the awesome pleasure of working with Baylee at the Veterinary Health Center in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Kansas State Universary. She was one terrific assest at the Discharge/Emergency Desk! A very stressful environment which she took in stride. Her positive, friendly attitude helped clients, staff and pets as well. She was dependable and hard working which made my supervisory role much easier! She always went beyond what was required, average would never be an adjective I would use in her evaluation. She comes from "good people" and spreads sunshine wherever she goes. Thank you for recognizing what a Treasure she is! You are fortunate to have her and I am thankful that you know that!
what a beautiful spirit. Baylee has alway's been special too me and we all know that she is a great inspiration to all who come in contact with her.
Baylee is a vibrant, out going individual with a can do attitude. Positive, encouraging to others with unbelievable mental strength. I worked with Baylee out our church. She did wonders for the children's program.
Mrs. Teagarden is not only an amazing teacher but is an all around amazing person with the biggest heart of anyone I know. Since I can remember she has gone above and beyond for the sake of others, consistently putting herself last. Her love of kids and people in general can be seen in her everyday actions, and her belief that everyone can achieve with the right encouragement and support is evident. Mrs. Teagarden's love of kids and belief in their success makes her go above and beyond academics resulting in making lasting positive relationships with all of her students. Mrs. Teagarden is most deserving of this lifechanger award as she is truly someone who changes people's lives for the better.
Mrs. Teagarden certainly has a heart for kids, God bless her and her accomplishments!
Baylee Teagarden is AMAZING! Her first year of teaching she challenged the students in her girls fitness classes to run a 5K to help raise funds for our elementary school's Night at the Museum. She told the girls that she would be with them every step of the way and I was there to witness that promise taking place. She could have easily finished the race and waited to cheer on her girls from the finish line. This however would never have been an acceptable behavior for her. She encouraged numerous girls, several who would have NEVER considered attempting a 5K, every step of the 3.2 miles with a positive, upbeat attitude and a smile on her face. It was amazing to see the hugs, the smiles, the high fives and the absolute joy on the faces of these young women at the finish line. I enjoy every opportunity I get to visit with her. SHE is a LIFECHANGER!
If Baylee Teagarden could adopt every kid that she would like to take under her wing, she'd have her own city! She has a way of being "home" for her students--that warm, comforting, stable, safe place that one can always depend on. She holds them accountable for their choices and decisions. Her heart breaks privately when they choose poorly and celebrates with them when they have success. Baylee's professional plate consists of teaching and coaching, to which she gives 150%, while her personal plate is also full with special circumstances at home that require her heart and energy 150% as well. Without fail, however, she can be found always encouraging, always inspiring everyone that she meets. She's an asset to PHS and has, no doubt, been life-changing for our students.
This kind, gentle lady & her husband coached our grandsons T-Ball Team in summer of 2016 at Parker , Ks. She was so kind & patient to her team. She encouraged each member. She never made a bad comment to her team. She was a outstanding lady. She also visited with her teams family at sometime. She always wore a beautiful smile. Ms. Teagarden deserves all the recognition she can get.. Was hoping she would coach this year, but she never. Good luck Ms Teagarden
I had Mrs. Teagarden for Recreational Sports my senior year at Paola High School. She never failed to make me smile and especially the ones that needed her smile. Her consistency to make others feel welcome and important is one of her strongest characteristics. I had Mrs. Teagarden during her first year at Paola High and she fit in well, made a name for herself (in a positive way), and most importantly was selfless. Overall, she is very deserving of this award and recognition.
My son was one of the students who benefited from Ms. Teagarden's classes. She was definitely one of his favorite teachers. Congrats!
Baylee is an inspiration. She's a woman of kindness and integrity. She is very deserving of this award!
Well said, Mr. Bressler. Baylee is undoubtedly deserving of this honor, and you and your school are to be credited for recognizing, supporting, and encouraging her insight and commitment to education and personal growth in her students.
Baylee Teagarden is an amazing teacher who teaches students more than from just a book. She is everyone's go to teacher as she listens and she fights for what is right for the students. She is selfless and I have never seen her without a smile and would move mountains for any child. She is a phenomenal example of perseverance accompanied by love and passion. Her presence makes everyone a better person for being around her.
Bailee Teagarden is absolutely deserving of this honor. I can not speak highly enough of her. I would be more than willing to speak privately or email directly my reasons for believing that Ms. Teagarden is literally a Lifechanger.
Baylee makes a difference everyday. Her spirit and zest for what she believes in is contagious! My daughter shared many personal conversations about life with her and always walked away feeling understood and appreciated. Paola High School is a better place hands down because of Mrs. Teagarden.
Mrs. Teagarden has been an amazing influence on both of my teenagers currently enrolled at PHS. My oldest has a hearing loss and often times has struggled at school between surgeries, recoveries, and just not hearing well. Mrs. Teagarden is one of those amazing teachers that from day one has always taken the time to be understanding and a positive person in my oldest daughter's day. She looks forward to her class with her with anticipation and knows that she is a teacher she can trust and confide in.
As parents we are thankful to have someone as amazing and positive as an influence on our girls' lives.
I don't know of a more deserving individual! Baylee is strong, motivating & cares deeply about children. Her love & kindness shows in all that she does!
Baylee is so inspiring to me as a parent she see the good and the worth in every person she meets! She has been a huge part of my kiddo building more self confidence in herself! Thank you for all you do for the students a PHS
I have known Baylee for many years. She is caring, loving and makes a difference in every life she touches. She is an incredible person and I am so pleased she is being recognized for all the good she has done and continues to do. She is one in a million!
Mrs. Teagarden is truly one of those individuals that goes above and beyond in all areas of her life. She puts her heart and soul into her role as a wife, mother, teacher, mentor and coach. She cares deeply about her students and athletes and is always willing to step up, help out and provide a safe place for her students to feel heard and understood. She encourages her students to dream big and shoot for the moon because she truly believes with the right support and encouragement they can be successful. She gives so much to everyone in her life without hesitation or desire for acknowledgement. She does all this while still managing a household, caring for her two beautiful children and advocating for her disabled daughter. Mrs. Teagarden is truly a life changer in the lives of so many. She absolutely deserves to be recognized for all of her hard work and dedication as she has made it her life's work to ensure the success of our future generations.
