Mr. Washington is Hidden Valley's Teacher Assistant of the Year!
"Being born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina and having the opportunity to educate at Hidden Valley Elementary means a lot to current TA of the Year Mr. Washington. His claimto winning this award is predicated more on the amazing culture that the staff at Hidden Valley has cultivated. He is very happy to be considered an integral part of what happens at Hidden Valley every day. Having the opportunity to work with the future change makers of Charlotte and instilling in them the importance of hard work, dedication, art, and civic engagement is one of his greatest joys. As most educators will tell you, he believes he learns more from them than they do from him."
