Kristin Vance

Holley-Navarre Intermediate School

 

A heart to serve others describes our nominee for SREY. Our guidance assistant brightens the hallways with her contagious smile and encouraging attitude. She serves on our PBIS committee and reaches out to all students to promote positive behavior throughout the school. She is available to students who need a little time to regroup and refocus. Always willing to help others, she is one of our Success Team coaches.

She meets with students weekly to encourage them to develop good study habits, organizational skills, and establish good work ethics. For the past 2 years, she has been one of the advisers on our Anchored 4 Life team. Anchored 4 Life is a group of students who teach and model resiliency in our school. With almost half of our students military connected and our transient population, this team works together with the students to reach out to all students transferring in and out of our school. We participate with Outreach Navarre to provide weekend food bags for over 100 of our students weekly. Our guidance assistant makes the labels and ensures that all the students have food for the weekend and holidays. She also participates on the Parent Advisory Council which is the communication process for parents and faculty to learn more about Title I. She volunteers for after school activities such as Open House and our annual Halloween Dance. Our nominee exudes professionalism, compassion, and love of children. We greatly appreciate her dedication to students, faculty, and parents.
