On Thursday, Nov. 16, the Mt. Vernon School Board presented Anna Barehead with the November MVP Award. Barehead is a special education teacher at Mt. Vernon Elementary School.
When nominating her for MVP, some of her peers said:

“Mrs. Barehead has stepped up in a new role, moving into the classroom unexpectedly, and has been a champion for our students. She has shown determination and commitment to our school and children.”

“Anna is relentlessly optimistic and sees the potential in every student. She takes time to see a child and talke all of their strengths and challenges into consideration. She is also incredibly encouraging and supportive to the team members in our classroom to make sure we have the resources and support we need.”

“Mrs. Barehead not only filled a role, but created an entirely new class. Because the school year was already underway, it is easy to forget about the hard work she put in to shift gears and make our classroom a success. She deserves recognition and respect for taking on so much responsibility and thriving under pressure. She has developed curriculum, curated a classroom, and changed her entire career trajectory. She has also become a friend and mentor to her colleagues. We always know we can rely on her to be available, even in times of chaos.
