Dooly K-8 Students celebrate Read Across America in 2022!
From Brenda Burden: This year will mark three years that I have worked with Ms. McClendon. I must say she has shown her passion and love for teaching and for the children. Miss McClendon shows concern for each of her students' individual abilities to learn, and she sets goals for the individual’s need. She arrives early to set up her plans and to make the atmosphere a comfortable learning environment for the class. She monitors the children's’ wellbeing. She is full of energy and is very active and lively with her class. The results and improvement of our children's knowledge, motor skills and communication level speaks to the rigorous work she has implemented so far this year. Ms. McClendon is also a caring leader. I appreciate her willingness to tackle any task. Ms. McClendon will mop, clean tables, and do other jobs that many would find unpleasant. Together, we have managed to keep our room as clean and safe as possible during this pandemic. Miss McClendon wears a lot of hats under her certificate, and she faces her challenges with her class in mind to get the results needed to move them to the next level. With that being said, I nominate Ms. Shaneikia McClendon as the March Coin of Distinction Recipient.

We, the Dooly County K-8 Academy Faculty and Staff, would like to nominate Mrs. Crystal Colbert Williams for the Coin of Distinction Award for this month. She has exhibited a tireless dedication to our school and deserves to be recognized. Mrs. Williams is a very strong communicator which is truly an asset for our school. She comes to work early every morning to ensure that students who are dropped off in the car rider section has proper supervision. She has been the lead media paraprofessional to ensure that electronic devices are distributed properly, book circulation is occurring for students, and that teacher needs are met as well. She shows empathy and patience to students as well as the faculty. Mrs. Williams is a true collaborator as she will work with students and faculty to get jobs done. She provides “Story time with Mrs. Crystal” weekly for our kids during which she reads a story and connects it to real world situations. She also goes in to Pre-K classes to read to them. Mrs. Crystal is kind and fair with all whom she comes into contact with at the school. She wears several hats in the capacity of the school and takes on several other duties and responsibilities to ensure that every need is met for the students. That is why we are nominating Mrs. Williams for the Coin of Distinction.
