Two outstanding employees were honored this week by the Kansas City, Kansas Board of Education as Employees of the Month for December. Congratulations to Ivey Brown, bus driver from Transportation, and Hannah Ferguson, Kindergarten teacher from John F. Kennedy Elementary. The following are excerpts from their nominations:

Ivey Brown

Every October, one of our bus drivers, Ivey Brown, does her best to raise awareness about breast cancer. She spends a lot of her time raising funds for breast cancer research. Ms. Brown uses her own money to get items together for prize giveaways. We have many breast cancer survivors within our fleet, who recognize and are appreciative of what she is doing. You can count on Ms. Ivy going around collecting money from others and speaking at our monthly drivers meeting to provide both men and women information about the importance of getting checked. We think she should be honored for all the years of selfless acts which she displays.”

Hannah Ferguson

“Hannah works hard to meet her students’ needs. She is always looking for ways to build strong relationships with her students. She is very involved in making scales and anchor charts to help her students see how their learning is improving. Hannah spends a lot of time making her classroom inviting and fun for the students. She is always positive with her students and they know how much she cares for them. She is always willing to go the extra mile for students and her teammates. I love her energy and excitement for teaching. Our school is very blessed to have her as one of our kindergarten teachers.”
