Meet Catherine Gross, a kindergarten teacher at Manchester Elementary School, who is receiving an Employee Recognition Certificate from the Maranacook Education Foundation.  Catherine was nominated by a colleague for this honor who shared that Catherine has created, despite having a large class, a phenomenal learning environment for her little learners. Presenting the certificate to Jean is Abbie Hartford, the Principal of Manchester Elementary. 

The Foundation believes, and we’re sure that many in the community agree, that we have excellent employees in our school district who provide outstanding educational and support services to the students we serve. In an effort to show appreciation for their service, we created a process to recognize employees each month. Recipients for this recognition are randomly selected from employees nominated for their excellent efforts by fellow staff, parents, students, and community members. Each recipient receives a small honorarium and most importantly, the public recognition they so richly deserve. Those nominated can be teachers, administrators, coaches, and support staff who work in every department in the district. Please use this link to complete the nomination form if you would like to make your admired employee a candidate for this recognition.

Congratulations Catherine!
