Holly Welch was nominated by a colleague who wished to remain anonymous.
Mrs.Welch has shown consistent dedication to the education of not just her students, or "Kinders," as she likes to call them, but all of the Kinders in the school. She has taken children who knew nothing on day one and taught them to read at or above a first grade level by the end of the year. She pushes her teammates and colleagues to be the best that they can be and routinely shares her best practices, resources, and wisdom. Mrs. Welch loves every single one of Brown Academy's Kinders like her own and is a great asset to her team, school, and community. She is definitely a difference maker in the lives of everyone fortunate enough to have her as a part of their own.
