March 31, 2021 – Caseyville Elementary School secretary Kristin Scott was surprised in the office today with news that she was named February 2021 Kahok Educator of the Month. The award was presented by Edward Jones Representative Jason Rehg and Caseyville Principal Chelsea Clark. The presentation was unable to happen in February.
Principal Clark had this to say about Mrs. Scott:
“In a year of craziness, Mrs. Scott has worn many different hats. She is often the first person parents speak to when they call in with all the questions this year entailed. Kristin remains calm and professional through all those difficult conversations, even when telling a parent their child has to quarantine. Attendance was extremely difficult this year. She continued to communicate with teachers and families regarding absences. She assisted families all throughout the year with connectivity issues and helping to switch out hotspots.”
Local Edward Jones Representative Jason Rehg sponsors the award each month during the school year to recognize outstanding educators in Collinsville CUSD 10.
