Tina Sprinkle, a Teacher Assistant, is our Staff Member of the Month. Ms. Sprinkle has an amazing ability to get kids prepped to take the G.E.D. exam. This is a difficult process, as a number of the students have experienced gaps in learning that need to be filled in before moving on. Ms. Sprinkle excels at instilling a sense of confidence in each student that their hard work will be enough to get the job done. Great job, Ms. Sprinkle!
