Since joining Minnehaha two years ago, Keri Knight has made deep connections with staff and colleagues, and her students and families, said one of her nominators. On a daily basis, she shows levels of dedication and passion that are rare to sustain, yet she persists, nurturing relationships built on support and trust. Last fall, Knight noticed on Zoom that a student was struggling with a math lesson. After school, she dropped by the student’s house and sat, masked, on the family’s front porch, explaining the lesson in different ways. This act helped the student feel much more calm and supported.
From the nomination:
“Mrs. Knight has been unbelievably patient and accommodating and helpful.”
