Congratulations Ms. Keener!
The Presbyterian Home for Children and Hope Academy are proud to announce that our very own Ms. Elaine Keener was awarded Teacher of the Month for March 2016 by the Talladega Rotary Club. Ms. Keener has been teaching at Hope Academy for 5 years and teaching overall for 39 years. She was given a $100.00 check from our local Rotary Club and put it to good use for her classroom. She purchased play-doh sets, paper plates, cleaning supplies, and individual seeds and gardening pots for each student. Though she was welcome to spend the money on herself, she chose to put it toward her students. We look forward to seeing the beautiful flowers and vegetables that the students plant! Below, you will see some of the play-doh creations made by Ms. Keener’s students as well as a picture of Ms. Keener receiving her award from Rotary’s Cindy Pennington.
Great job, Ms. Keener! We are thankful to have you on our team helping children and families throughout the state of Alabama.
