Nominated By: Principal Stephanie Drake
Stephanie is an integral part of our Morley family with all the "above and beyond" activities and support she provides for students and teachers each week. She is a true media specialist in that she seeks opportunities to provide staff and students with the media that will support their learning and goals. Stephanie caters to the needs of individual learners by helping them select books, and she finds "just right" books for students who may be wanting to find something new or who are struggling a bit. Stephanie is flexible with her schedule and has substituted for classroom staff as well as supervised students each day during the lunch hour. Stephanie gives one lunch hour per week to a young student as a mentor in the TeamMates Program, as well. Her lessons are fun and engaging for students and her enthusiasm for literature is contagious, like laughter. Stephanie Kinnaman is an inspiring Morley teacher.
