Michelle McClure, Special Education Assistant at West Side School was named as “Employee of the Month” for January 2020 during the January Meeting of the Board of Education. McClure was recognized at the meeting and presented a certificate by Cannon County Schools Director William F. Curtis for her service to the school system. Employees are nominated by School Principals or School District Supervisors and are voted on during monthly Principal and Supervisor meetings regarding individuals who exemplify the Mission and Vision of Cannon County Schools.
West Side School Principal Karen King, nominated McClure stating, “Michelle is a jack of all trades. She helps with inclusion and small group instruction for our SPED kids as well as helping them continue with Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy exercises as they are warranted in each Individualized Educational Plan. Every morning she immediately finds her students and she can be seen doing cross overs and scissor walks and number or letter jumps, along with whatever each child needs. She is extremely patient and loving with the students and has a great rapport with the staff. In addition to her duties during school, she always helps after school with any activities we have going on. She and her husband build sets for Harvest Festivals and help with School Carnival, and she is ready and willing to help in any way she can. She is a very integral part of our school.”
Director of Cannon County Schools, William F. Curtis, commented “Mrs. Michelle McClure is an outstanding employee and goes beyond to serve the children of West Side School. Her belief in the success of every student in her care is her focus. I believe Mrs. McClure greatly personifies our Mission of Cannon County Schools of ‘Preparing All Students for their Future’ by most assuredly being ‘The New E3 – Engaged in Excellence Every Day.’ Congratulations to Mrs. Michelle McClure for being an impactful ‘Team Player’ in our Cannon County Schools family.”
