Music that Describes Chelsea
Chelsea Fitzgerald was nominated by her colleague, Sarah Thomas.
"Mrs. Fitzgerald is a wonderful person. I've seen her come in early, stay late, and really get to know the children she teaches," said Thomas. "She is actively involved with her students' families and goes the extra mile to get the proper resources for them. As a school secretary, I witness a lot, and I can see her interact with her kiddos, actively listening to them, and being their rock when they need it. She keeps things fun and exciting, yet she teaches these four, five, and six-year olds at the same time. You see the light and love in her students' eyes when they see her. I see students who struggled with communication...open up and become little people who love to learn and communicate when they didn't know how to before. She is a wonderful colleague and teacher!"
