I would like to nominate Shani McGarry on behalf of my students, ages four and five. Shani is very compassionate. Whether a child is truly sick or just needs a bandage, Shani meets him or her in her office with a big smile. If a child is sent back to class, Shani will come back later to see if the child is doing better. The children know that she cares about them. It is an honor to have someone like Shani at our school.
—Nominated by Susan Magee
