May 12, 2021 – Hollywood Heights educational assistant Amanda Calvin was surprised today in her classroom with the announcement that she is the May 2021 Kahok Educator of the Month. The award was presented by Edward Jones Representative Jason Rehg and Hollywood Heights Principal Tara Glynn.
Principal Mrs. Glynn said:
“Amanda comes into work always ready to go. She is willing to go above and beyond for the students in our classroom. She adjusts her teaching and communication with students based on where they are or what they may need at the time. She is always willing to jump in wherever she is needed. Amanda has worked hard and built great relationships and rapport with each of the students in and out of the classroom. The students know she cares about them and wants them to do their best. She – and the classroom teacher she works with – both treat their students as though they are their own. Ms. Calvin is an asset to the Hollywood Heights school and we are lucky to have her!”
Local Edward Jones Representative Jason Rehg sponsors the award each month during the school year to recognize outstanding educators in Collinsville CUSD 10.
