Ms. Evers Named FCPS Region 2 Outstanding Hourly Employee!
Congratulations to Environmental Education Teacher Stacey Evers who was recognized at the annual FCPS Honors event as the 2018 Region 2 Outstanding School-based Hourly Employee and one of five finalists for this year's Outstanding School-based Hourly Employee Award!
Thanks to Ms. Evers' efforts, Belvedere students have raised trout, studied the water quality in the Potomac and Anacostia rivers, and started a seedling nursery to improve the local tree canopy. Fellow teachers praise her ability to turn outdoor spaces into extensions of their classrooms, which led to Belvedere’s designation as a Virginia Naturally School. Ms. Evers has students monitor trash consumption and compost lunch waste as members of the Waste Watchers and Green Team Club and invites parents along when the Outdoors Club visits a different county park each month. “So many of our students take action every day because of the role model in Ms. Evers,” said one administrator.
Thank you to Cecilia Vanderhye for all of their hard work with the nomination process by serving as this year's awards liaison.
