Congratulations to our 2017-2018 Teacher of the Year, KATHY SHAHOUD!

Congratulations to Kathy Shahoud, our ESOL teacher and 2017-2018 Teacher of the Year!  She has been in education for 24 years and has been at LES for 10 of those.  She has a BS in Elementary Education, Early Childhood and English for Speakers of Other Languages.
Her Personal Philosophy of Teaching: “I believe to effectively educate a student, we must be aware that many factors come in to play when it comes to academic success.   While it is important to know the student’s current academic levels, it is also important to be aware of his/her family culture, dynamics, education, and background knowledge.  This information allows us to       Kathy Shahoud & Jim Hamby                            be empathetic educators who can meet all                                                                                          the needs of the student.”

And we would be remiss not to offer congratulations to the other four
Teacher of the Year Finalists!  Every one of these teachers are super stars!Christie Hooker – 5th grade, Ashlee Young – 1st grade, Kathy Shahoud – ESOL,
Julie Mentnech – Kindergarten, Rebecca Spires – Art

LES 3rd grade class featured in DEN Voices Connect 3 song video

Mrs. Scott’s 3rd grade students participated at the end of last year in a virtual choir as part of the DEN Voices Connect project. This is a passion project for the Discovery Educator Network. Classrooms from around the United States and the world learned and practiced the same song, recorded and submitted their video to the project. The students recorded this with Tricia Hood, now retired music teacher and Suzanne Brooks, former digital learning coach.
The final virtual video was released last week featuring Lexington Elementary along with students from North Carolina, Wisconsin, Canada, and Antigua and Barbuda. The students performed “We Might Heal” from Plank Road Publishing by Teresa Jennings. The timing of the virtual video’s completion coincided with the devastation in the Houston. We didn’t know that this song would be so timely right now. The DEN Voices Project decided to dedicate this to the students affected by Hurricane Harvey!
