Ms. Stevens is kind and compassionate and great at building relationships with the kids. She works as our title reading aide and is very knowledgeable and good at working with the kids. She also a great asset with our KRR after school program. We are so lucky to have her at Kennedy!
I agree 100% with the comments on Molly's profile. Molly is a tremendous resource for Kennedy. She is a very hard worker and is always looking for fun and new ideas to help her students learn. She is well liked by all the kiddos at Kennedy as well as her colleagues. I have had the pleasure of working closely with Molly during the summer KRR program for the last 3 years as well as Kennedy for 7 years. She is always enthusiastic, fun to work with, and puts in her all, everyday! She is a great reading specialist, person, and friend.
Ms. Stephens is a critical part of our Title 1 Reading Program at Kennedy Elementary School. She works so collaboratively with our Title 1 teacher that she is more like a second teacher in the classroom. The two work hand-in-hand daily to ensure students receive the best reading intervention strategies to continuously improve their reading skills. Ms. Stephens is always willing to help students and colleagues, in any way she can. She is always positive and has never been seen without a friendly smile on her face, ensuring all students feel welcome in her classroom. Ms. Stephens' role at Kennedy is a crucial part of our student's success.
Molly has certainly been a life changer in my life. She has been working with me for 10+ years. She is an exceptional aide and is wonderful with the students. The students love and respect her as well as the Kennedy staff. When you enter my room and see her working with the students you literally can't tell which one of us has the teaching degree. She also works with the KRR program after school and in the summer. We are blessed to have her as a colleague at Kennedy.
Molly is a great reading specialist aid. She always works at trying to improve instruction for her students. She has built relationships with the students in which she works. She is a great support to our building and provides opportunities for increasing Kennedy Elementary Student's growth.
