Kelly Renn was nominated by an anonymous parent of a student.
"Mrs. Renn is definitely a LifeChanger," said the nominator. "She has been the best math teacher my son has had in his upper grades. He has struggled with math until this year. Mrs. Renn goes above and beyond teaching. She teaches, then re-mediates when her students do not understand the skill. She helps my son after school, as well as when I text or email her. My son was sick, and she went out of her way twice to bring him what he missed in class."
"Mrs. Renn helped with a math bootcamp before state testing. She took my son and brought him home afterwards so that he was able to attend and learn on a Saturday morning," said the nominator. "She is committed to her students and her love of educating them."
"From a parent's point of view, Mrs. Renn is a breath of fresh air because she wants parents to be involved with their children's education," said the nominator. "She makes sure we know what is going on in the classroom, as far as what our son is learning and how his grades are. If he is struggling with something, I am informed so that I am able to help him as much as I can."
"Every afternoon, my son comes home and tells me he has had a great day in math," said the nominator. "This is what I want to hear as a parent, especially the parent of someone who has struggled with math their entire life. Instead of dreading to go to class, he wants to go because he knows that Mrs. Renn is going to teach and help him if he does not understand. She has been a LifeChanger in my son's life!"
