Pursuit of Excellence Awards Winners for May 2019
Congratulations to the following employees who are the May 2019 recipients of the Pursuit of Excellence Award for the Baldwin County School District.
Ms. Crystal Beard Lead Teacher at the Early Learning Center Nominated by Ms. Stephanie Wright, Coworker
Ms. Crystal Beard has served as a lead teacher at the Early Learning Center since 2016. She was nominated by her co-worker Ms. Wright. Ms. Wright had the following to say about Ms. Beard, if you were to look up the word "teacher" in the dictionary, you will definitely find a picture of Crystal Beard. Mrs. Beard is energetic, compassionate and always finding new ways/ideas for the kids to learn. During the Christmas break, she along with some co-workers spend several late night hours creating the "Jungle" at the ELC. During home visits, in the smothering Georgia heat, the air conditioner stop working in her car. Instead of getting her car repaired, she spend her money on purchasing each child in her classroom a purple ELC shirt so they all could wear them on field trips. I am blessed to call her co-worker and witness the impact she has on the students in Baldwin County. Ms. Beard, thank you for your example of excellence!
