January 5, 2022 | Kelly Mapes Staff Member of the Month

Kelly Mapes was honored with December Staff Member of the Month!


Kelly jumped in from Day 1 last year as a brand new teacher, handed a caseload mid-semester and ran with it with a smile on her face, even when she was stressed. Kelly spends every day building relationships with students and staff. She is positive and joyful and adds so much positivity to the Paddock Road culture. Kelly is always willing to ask for help if she is unsure of how to do something and she works hard every day to grow in her profession. She gives up lunches (MORE than willingly) to bond with students (past and present) and she maintains positive and ongoing relationships with the families of the students on her caseload. Kelly is also always willing to jump in and help out, regardless of whether or not it fits in her job description. Kelly is always so appreciative of help and also, so willing to have patience and grace for her teammates and teachers.
