Glasscock Elementary teacher Daily Goatley received this year’s first “Encourage the Heart” acknowledgement this week from Chief Academic Officer Tammy Newcome.
School principals were asked to select a teacher and write a handwritten note of appreciation and encouragement. Goatley’s note, written by Glasscock Elementary principal Angie Akers, was selected, and Goatley received a surprise visit from Newcome who presented her with the note and an “Encourage the Heart” t-shirt.
“Encourage the Heart” is one of the five practices outlined in The Leadership Challenge -- a book focusing on developing strong leadership, which the MCPS Leadership Team is currently studying.
