Susan Bailey, Teacher at Harding Avenue Elementary School, Earns Recognition from McAlister's Deli as Outstanding Educator
Blacksburg, VA (May 30, 2019) — 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 Susan Bailey of Harding Avenue Elementary School, who was chosen as an Outstanding Educator in her community.
Katie Lafon, a nominator of Ms. Bailey, said, "Ms. Bailey has taught 2 of my 3 children in 2 different grades. She goes above and beyond the expectations of any teacher. ... She always makes time to talk to us when we run into her outside of school, which just makes their day. Her first priority is truly her student and seeing them succeed. She is a very special teacher and we are lucky to have her at our school."
Ms. Bailey is awarded a $50 McAlister's gift card and a certificate as well as tea and cookies for her class. Thank you, Ms. Bailey, 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:
