Shelby Lindley was nominated by her colleague, Lauralea Curavoo.
Ms. Lindley is the driving force behind the PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) school team at Barre Town this year. She regularly goes out of her way, staying after school and arriving early to make sure the PBIS team and her students have what they need to be as successful as possible at school. Ms. Lindley not only keeps the PBIS team on track and focused on what's good for kids, but she creates deep, meaningful relationships with students. She is able to successfully work with some of the most challenging students and positively affect their behavior during the school day. Students request to see her during the day because she is a safe and caring adult who can help them refocus and have a successful day.
Ms. Lindley is one of several teachers who does CICO (Check-In/Check-Out) with students at the start and end of their day. This program is showing high success for the students who struggle the most in her school. Her contribution to the PBIS team and her students is invaluable, and her colleagues are lucky to have her!
