Chamberlain International School’s Title 1 Teacher Sally Kelly was recently recognized for Excellence in Service by the National Association of Therapeutic Schools and Programs. The Excellence in Service award is presented annually at the NATSAP regional conferences to honor staff who go above and beyond their job requirements to provide excellent services to their students. It is meant to pay tribute to those in organizations and schools who play such vital roles behind the scenes but do not get the spotlight very often. Sally was one of only two people chosen for this award from the Northeast Region this year.
Sally is in charge of working with any students in need of Title 1 services. She works with the most challenging students one on one and in small group settings to address individual academic deficits. In addition to this she also administers several of the academic assessments requested by school districts and parents. Sally goes above and beyond to help her students to be successful in all areas of their academic studies. Meeting the achievement standards on the Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) is a graduation requirement for Massachusetts students. She has assisted many students over the years to exceed those expectations by alleviating the anxiety around testing by building confidence in all of the kids who enter her small class room.
Sally has become an important member of the Chamberlain family over the last 15 years. Her influence is widespread throughout the campus. She has assisted countless students achieve what had been unachievable. In addition to that, Educational Director Scott Davignon says “Her experience and influence has helped many of our younger teachers to develop into well the rounded educators they are today. We are very proud to call her one of our own.”
