Christiansburg Primary School Teacher, Crystal Fentress, Earns Recognition from McAlister's Deli as Outstanding Educator
Blacksburg, VA (May 11, 2018) — To celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week, we asked you, our guests, to nominate educators who have made an impact on you or our local community. Today, we announce our winner at our Blacksburg location. Congratulations to Crystal Fentress of Christiansburg Primary School, who was chosen as an Outstanding Educator in her community.
Jackie Harman, a nominator of Ms. Fentress, said, "Crystal is a Pre-K teacher. … She will meet the parents at their home so that the kids are comfortable coming into a new environment. Let's be honest, having your baby leave you for the first time is scary and it's nice to have someone who cares. When Crystal isn't teaching, she and her husband, who also teaches, are at school board meetings fighting for students' and teachers' rights. She's amazing and I'm glad that I've had the opportunity to have met her.
Ms. Fentress is awarded a $50 McAlister's gift card and a certificate as well as tea and cookies for her class. Thank you, Ms. Fentress, for all you have done for the students in your community.
We received many amazing nominations, and we want to recognize them all. Here are the Teacher Appreciation nominees in Blacksburg:
