Congratulations to Andrea Shepard, Lansing K-3 Special Education Teacher for being the recipient of the KNEA Read to Achieve Award!
The person who nominated Andrea said she “goes above and beyond for her students. She teaches special education behavior skills for grades K-3. The school could not function without her. While she has one of the most difficult jobs in the school, she is always smiling and helping students see the positive side. She deals with students who struggle with a difficult home life, regulating their emotions, and how to be OK. She is shaping children to be successful adults. Andrea has changed the perception of student with behavior needs at our school in the two years she’s been employed. She is an impeccable educator.”
