Music that Describes Sky


Sky Kong was nominated by her spouse, Raymond Kong.

"I met my wife well before she was a teacher," said Mr. Kong. "Even then, while attending Pearl River Community College, she was helping others. Sky was helping other students in the student support program by tutoring anyone who needed a little extra help with their academics. Through the years, the one thing that has always been the same is her overwhelming care for her students and her need to help them succeed in life. She is one of the most caring, driven people I have ever known. Even after all these years, she astounds me everyday!"

Sky and I have only been friends a short while, but in that time, she has been the most loving, supportive, and helpful friend. She has given so much of herself to making sure I know how strong and loved I am. She has been a beautiful light in some of my darkest times during the worst year of my life... I can't even express in words how much Sky means to me...

As the founder of Right Choice Learning Center, Inc., Sky is the most unselfish goal oriented multi-tasker that I know. Although I have only worked with her for a short time, I have witnessed her unselfish devotion to her students. Sometimes her commitment to her students may seem as if she has stepped in as a second mother. Not only is she devoted to her students, she brings a ray of sunshine to any situation. While this recognition may seem small her impact on her students cannot be measured. She recently adjoined herself to a newly formed non-profit organization whose mission is to offer children from under-served communities affordable educational programming which bridges the gap in academic learning for students in high poverty rural communities. Although the odds are astronomical I feel that she is truly deserving of this small public acknowledgement.

I have worked with Sky for about 7 years. She is a life changer. She goes above and beyond every day for her students. She works tirelessly to make them successful. She understands the students and where they are coming from and does everything she can to enhance their education in every way. She is a phenomenal teacher!

Sky is someone who was born to be a teacher. She is committed to her students and helping them succeed both inside and outside the classroom. She is always thinking outside of the box to help her students learn new things. I witnessed her walking with a student who needed a few minutes to calm down and while they were "cooling off", she was explaining cause and effect to the student while using real life examples. She is always learning new things to help her grow as a teacher to be able to best help her students.

Sky is so good at her job and working with her students! She really puts her whole heart in her job! She really went above and beyond to help my child succeed in school! I can’t think of a more deserving person for this award.
