Congratulations to our 2017-18 Teacher
of the Year & Teacher Assistant of the Year!!!
Ms. Keigher-Teacher of the Year
Ms. Keigher serves as a kindergarten teacher at Hickory Grove Elementary. In addition to serving students, she also serves as a mentor, team leader, member of our School Leadership Team, and a member of our Spotlight Committee. Currently she has taken the lead to organize a “Pastries with Parents” event to get our kindergarten parents into the school to learn more about how they can best support their child for the second half of the school year. Ms. Keigher’s students consistently show high growth and are more than prepared to enter first grade each year. She builds and maintains strong relationships with students, staff, and parents. Her passion for this work is undeniable and she is a huge asset to the Hickory Grove Team!
Ms. Redmond-Teacher Assistant of the Year
Ms. Redmond serves as a teacher assistant with a primary focus on supporting math instruction in grades 3-5. She takes her own time before and after the school day to meet with teachers and plan small group instruction based on student data as well as the Math Common Core Standards. She has never met a student that she could not build a strong relationship with and support them in reaching high growth in math. Evidence of her impact can be seen in her work with students each and every day as well as the dramatic results she has achieved with students as measured by the NC Math EOG. She is a huge part of the excitement and engagement we have seen from our students in math. Ms. Redmond continues to set the bar higher and higher for students as well as her fellow colleagues!
