2021-2022 Exceptional Children's Teacher of Excellence

It is with great pride that we share Rachel Donnelly, EC Teacher at Trent Park Elementary School has been selected for the EC Educator of Excellence Award. Mrs. Donnelly personifies the definition of the title "Educator of Excellence." She uses data-driven instruction through her day-to-day operations. Mrs. Donnelly supports not only her EC students but ALL students in our school. She works with teachers and other staff to support their needs in the general education classroom. Mrs. Donnelly is a member of the School Improvement Team and the school MTSS team at her school. She participates in grade-level PLCs to make sure she aligns her instruction to that of the core instructional needs of the general education classroom. She uses a continuous improvement process in her classroom with her SPIRE groups to ensure she is doing everything she can to move her students and close achievement gaps. Not only does Mrs. Donnelly work as an effective teacher, but she is willing to share her knowledge with others. Mrs. Donnelly is an asset to the team in Craven County. CONGRATULATIONS!
