Mandy is an advocate for all students. She goes above and beyond to support teachers, students and families. She meets with teachers regularly to discuss what is going well and what's not going well and is always focused on what is best for students. Mandy is always positive; she looks at every situation or problem as an opportunity to learn and grow and always has a positive and growth mindset. Mandy's door is always open to teachers, students and families, anytime anyone needs her she will find a way to make herself available. Mandy has continued to lead our MTSS efforts at Pershing and was instrumental in helping to implement restorative practices at Pershing. Mandy is also a strong advocate on our intervention team, ensuring a student's intervention matches the need and is willing to help teach groups if needed. She loves working with students, and her smile can surely light up a room. We appreciate Mandy for so much, but most importantly for the love, care and support she shows the Pershing community.
