Tammy White

Pea Ridge Elementary School

Our nominee has created positive relationships with our faculty and staff, parents and students, guests, community members, and district staff. She makes personal connections with our regular volunteers and visitors in order to make them feel welcome and valuable to our school. She treats everyone with respect and maintains a calm approach with parents who may be upset or escalated. Our nominee is extremely organized and efficient. If she doesn’t have an answer for someone, she quickly contacts someone who can help. Our nominee has been very patient with our new access control system. She follows policies with no exceptions in order to help maintain a safe school environment.

Immediately after beginning her position at our school, she cleaned, organized files, and made the front office area more presentable and welcoming for guests. Without hesitation, our nominee completes any task that is asked of her. She is innovative and eager to share new ideas to help our front office operate smoothly. We are proud to have her as the first face parents and guests see, and the first voice they hear on the phone.
