This week we presented our FIRST Teaming Up With Teachers Award to…Ms. Kelly Czarnecki at Sexton Elementary! 

We send a huge thanks to Sexton Elementary and Principal Mrs. Burns for allowing us to present this award.

More than one person nominated Ms. Czarnecki, stating:

“Kelly Czarnecki is truly passionate about providing the best education for her students. My daughter is not only learning SO much, but she feels heard, she feels cared for, she feels safe. Ms. Czarnecki goes above and beyond to make sure her student get the very best.” – Tricia S.

“Ms. Czarnecki is a very caring and fair teacher. She makes each student feel like they are the most important student in her class. Students ask to be in her class.” – Sandra G.W

We initially planned to award the first $100 gift card after April 31, however, we received such an overwhelmingly positive response to the program that we decided to select a winner out of all the nominations we received in March as well! Thank you, Ms. Czarnecki, for all the great work you do for your students and school.

We wish we could honor all teachers in this way, as they are all so deserving. If you know a great teacher in Pinellas County, please nominate them here! We will be selecting one teacher monthly to award a $100 gift card in thanks for all their hard work and dedication to our community.
