In her nomination Nikki wrote, "Mrs. O may not lead a classroom, but she affects our student’s success as much as a teacher does every day. When she walks down a hallway she is greeted with shout outs, hugs and high fives. Her smile is contagious and it shows how genuinely she cares about the students. Starting from Kindergarten she begins teaching our kids the skills they need to deal with everyday situations (e.g., belly breathing and controlling their emotions). Riverview truly is blessed to have Mrs. O, and she brings us all so much joy and encompasses everything an amazing counselor should be and more. She has a heart full of love and an ear that is always ready to listen. She believes in the students at Riverview, and I can't think of anyone more deserving of a BRAVO award!"
Great job, Lesley!
