Teacher of the Month at Novant

Lindsey Richardson

"I wanted to nominate Ms. Lindsey for the teacher of the month.  I didn't choose her just because she was my friend, I chose her because she has helped me out tremendously in the classroom.  She helps me with taking photos of the kids, doing some of the activities in the class, helps me keep the room clean, and more importantly she helps me with student behavioral support.  I honestly feel that I can always count on her to help me when I need it most." ~ Amber Wilkey
