For several years now, I have had the pleasure of working along side Kristen Chavez and have come to know her as an admirable colleague (and a supportive friend).

So I would like to give her a kudos shout out!

Not many people know what Kristen does behind the scenes for the students of the Positive Support Program EVERY day —– She works diligently to make sure the students have a structured, nurturing, and safe environment in which to work on assignments, socialize and, when necessary, to regroup. Additionally, at the beginning of the year Kristen stepped up to the plate to act as the PSP teacher when the position was not filled. Because of her, the students started this year off feeling supported and cared for.

It is for these reasons that I give the YOU ROCK award to Kristen Chavez!!!
