Angela Gillespie is an amazing 4th grade teacher at Jackson Park Elementary. Her students excel academically but her excellence and caring go far beyond the classroom. The parent that nominated her explained how Mrs. Gillespie visited their home as a way of connecting with the student and the family. However, what made the visit even more special is that Mrs. Gillespie came just days after experiencing the loss of someone within her own family. The parent said the visit was not planned or requested. Mrs. Gillespie simply did it because she cares that much about her students and wants to make genuine connections with families. The parent went on to describe being in Mrs. Gillespie’s classroom. She said she could feel the love that exists between Mrs. Gillespie and her students. She said she heard one student comment that Mrs. Gillespie was a big part his life and said he hoped he would grow up to make her proud one day. The parent calls Mrs. Gillespie an extraordinary teacher who gives part of herself to her students and will do whatever it takes to help them succeed. 

 

Angela Gillespie makes all of us in Kannapolis City Schools very proud. We’re delighted that she is part of our KCS family, and we are pleased that Hilbish Ford is honoring her with the Hilbish Ford Teacher of the Month Award. Congratulations!
