Teacher Corner

A big CONGRATULATIONS to our first Raider ROCKstar, Mrs. Elise Harrell!!!  Mrs. Harrell had multiple nominations!  

“Elise is always working for others- whether it’s her colleagues or students. She puts an enormous amount of thought into her work, makes lessons engaging (for staff and students), creates helpful tips and tutorials, and faces challenges with a positive attitude.”
