Misty is not only the heart, soul & the GLUE that holds our very special Special Education Deoartment together after a year where the turnover included everybody BUT her, but she is a friend, mentor, & constant support to so many staff members that don’t even fall into her department. She is not only valued by her peers, she is trusted by our students. She offers a friendly smile, an encouraging word, & a huge heart to everyone she encounters every single day. And she models everything we want our students to see & strive to become. She improves the lives of so many — adults & adolescents included!
