Employee Spotlight
Chrissy Nackowicz
Second Grade Teacher
Frank Elementary School
Chrissy Nackowicz leaning over a car with balloons and a smiling studentChrissy Nackowicz is a 2nd grade teacher at Frank Elementary. She has worked at Frank for nine years, serving students in grades 1 - 3. For the past two years, she has been a part of the second grade team.
Principal Lou Marconi writes: “It's clear that Mrs. Nackowicz puts in a lot of work behind the scenes. She is known for incorporating made-up songs, dances and individualized centers to help students remember content. So much of her time is spent in planning ways to bring traditional lessons to life. We are so fortunate to have a dedicated teacher like Mrs. Nackowicz!”
Mrs. Nackowicz focuses her attention on serving the whole child. During our remote learning last spring, she would drive to the homes of her families to celebrate a child's birthday. This small, kind act really lifted the spirits of everybody involved.
“Mrs. Nackowicz got a hold of us and wanted to surprise Caleb for his birthday!” shared Mr. Marjoe Cooper. “Caleb was pumped in his shy way until he got in the house and exploded with excitement.”
