Employee Spotlight: Amy HHarrelson, ESE TeacherAmy is kept busy at school in her specialty role, working with ESE students from kindergarten through 8th grade. So what hobbies does she enjoy in order to let down after a busy week? She says that she enjoys lots of outdoor activities – paddle boarding, playing soccer, hiking, camping, and hitting the ski slopes in the winter. Another hobby she enjoys is baking desserts, yum! How about Amy’s ‘top 5 favorite things’? Her number 1 favorite is her 8 year old son, Owen. Amy also loves “traveling to faraway places”, furry animals of any sort <smile>, spending summers with family in upstate NY, and like a true Keys gal she loves boating and lounging on tubes in the beautiful ocean waters of the Keys! So Amy enjoys baking desserts, but what about her favorite foods? She loves a delicious and hearty homemade mac and cheese, anything Mexican, and all things Thai food – mmm mmm! Lastly we asked Amy why she likes working for MCSD. She tells us, “I love seeing the amazing educators that I work with go above and beyond for our students each and every day! They are true professionals in every sense of the word. It is so wonderful to see the strong relationships that are built between staff and students.”
