Employee Spotlight
Katie Williams
Frank Elementary School

When she learns of a staff member's needs, she is quick to organize events or ideas to brighten their lives. In the past, she organized a school-wide World Down Syndrome Day and was an integral part in spreading joy during Kindness Week."“Katie is a ray of sunshine to all who meet her,” shared Heather Rodriguez, Third Grade Teacher at Frank Elementary School. “When you are in Katie's presence, you feel like the most important person ever. She is the unofficial cheer squad of Frank. She warmly greets all she meets, lends a helping hand. She has been a source of brightness in the ever-changing world we live in these days. Katie is always lifting the spirits of children and adults alike. Katie has spearheaded many kindness activities at Frank so that everyone feels they are part of Frank. Katie exudes kindness and respect wherever she goes.

“Katie is incredibly patient with students who may need a 100 tries with something instead of one or two. She always uses a kind, respectful voice to interact with them whether it is the first reminder or the thousandth reminder. She is the first to lead the way if a student needs it. She knows when to step aside and let them try. Katie is always ready to pick them up if they fall and she is the first to cheer for them. Katie is always available to help them feel confident in their abilities no matter how large or small the victory. She celebrates each child's uniqueness and brings out the best in them.”

Thank you for all you do for our students, Mrs. Williams!
