Sheila Angelo-Caffrey, a Special Education Teacher at Shepherdstown Elementary SchoolCHARLES TOWN, W.Va. -- Two Jefferson County School employees received the “One Jefferson” Award at Monday night’s Board of Education meeting:  Heather Pindell, a bus driver, and Sheila Angelo-Caffrey, a Special Education Teacher at Shepherdstown Elementary School.
Heather Pindell was instrumental in creating the “Stuff A Bus” Program prior to the opening of school.   This program collected over 160 book bags and other items for students. It was rated as “highly successful,” and thanks go out to the community members and school employees who donated these materials.
Sheila Angelo-Caffrey, a dedicated teacher, went far above and beyond her duties when she purchased, with her own money, $9,000 worth of SPIRE Curriculum (a researched based program currently in use).  In addition, she attended a one-day training in Maryland on her own time.  She has made friends with the SPIRE representative from Maryland who has sent her access to a webinar training ($500 value) for her to view for additional training.  She is also working on getting her six additional sets of classroom materials for levels 1-5 for her to use with her students. He was very impressed with her willingness to purchase materials with her own money.  This is the best example of the spirit of Jefferson that often goes unnoticed.
The One Jefferson Award is presented to a Jefferson County Schools Employee who exemplifies the hard work, dedication, and enthusiasm our staff embodies. Whether a service person or professional, these individuals give their all to make a difference for our students and their co-workers each and every day. The recipients of this award make us proud to work for Jefferson County Schools and remind us that we are all One Jefferson.
