Employee Recognition Form

September 2019: 

  • Erin Boyd - My child has said many time how kind Mrs. Boyd is. She says she always has a smile on her face even when the boys are being a "pain". She eats breakfast each morning so I'm glad she starts her day with a friendly face and somebody who shows kindness.
  • Frank Taylor - He takes time and special interest in my child. He truly cares about his wellbeing and his life after high school!
  • Karen Radford - I am the mother of a pre-K student at McHarg. I am currently the Director of the local Probation and Pretrial office, and my job often requires me to travel numerous days at a time. He has also had neurosurgery twice at UVA, and we have a very close relationship. He has had a different first four years of his life than most children.
         While I was on a 4 day work trip, he was not having the best week. He was “lashing out” in his behaviors, not listening, overly sensitive emotionally, etc. Mrs. Radford messages me every day to let me know how his day went, what he struggled with and what POSITIVE things happened. She always emphasized what he did that was positive, which I certainly appreciate. She offered him a “calm spot” when he was simply missing me and not having a good day.
         Her constant support and communication with me enabled me to FaceTime with him every evening and discuss what was bothering him, how we could make tomorrow a better day.    
         She went above and beyond anything that she had to do. She kept me up to date throughout the week and constantly reassured my son as well. She is an outstanding teacher and my son and his classmates are blessed to have her!
