CDavis

Hamilton Holmes Middle School
Christie Davis

Hamilton-Holmes Middle School would like to recognize Mrs. Christie Davis as the Employee of the Month for February.  From the start of the day to the dismissal bell, you will find multiple students stopping by Mrs. Davis’s room to check in and say ‘Hi’.  Both current and former students are drawn to the charisma and support Mrs. Davis projects.  It’s not uncommon for Mrs. Davis to have to remind visiting students that it is time for class, but they can check in with her at lunch or the next class change.  

The connection Mrs. Davis works to establish with her students consistently carries over to her classes.  This rapport and respect strengthens the opportunity for meaningful class discussions while also building a positive classroom environment.  Students know that Mrs. Davis is someone they can talk and laugh with and will always be there to listen.  These connections are what make our school a better place.  We proudly recognize Mrs. Davis as the February Employee of the Month.

Stephanie Greenwood

AES is proud to announce Stephanie Greenwood as our employee of the month.  Stephanie always has a smile on her face and speaks to everyone she sees.  Her enthusiasm spills over into her lessons as she creates lessons that differentiate learning for all her students.  She makes connections with students and celebrates their success.  When you enter her classroom you immediately get a feel for real-life connections as seen in her using tissue paper to demonstrate distance between planets and the sun, using the playground and woods to teach the settlement of Jamestown, and students earning colored karate belts for reading to name a few.  Ms. Greenwood collaboratively plans with her grade level teams and is knowledgeable and professional at all meetings.  We are honored to have Stephanie as a member of our team and look forward to working with her in years to come.
