2022 Inspire Award Winners


Mikayla Nelson

Beattie Elementary 
Special Education Teacher
Nominated By: Principal Julie Lee Lawler

Mikayla is consistent, caring, and present with and for her students. She consistently seeks to help her students and meet their needs. Mikayla works to communicate consistently with teams to plan instruction for students, and shows her students she genuinely cares about them. She has high expectations for students and with love guides her students to be the best versions of themselves!


Mikayla goes above and beyond what is expected of her. She spends so much extra time outside of school making materials for her students and planning engaging curriculum for them. She has also had a tough year with some student behaviors and she has risen to the challenge. I am so happy and proud to work with her--Beattie is a better school because she is here!
