The Teacher of the Month award is designed to recognize an employee that exemplifies our core values, which are compassion, humility, integrity, loyalty and discipline. This month we are pleased to announce that our 2022 August National Teacher of the Month is Ms. Elysia of Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool of Colorado Springs.
In talking about how Ms. Elysia exemplifies LSP’s core values, Program Director, Ms. Emma said, “Ms. Elysia is our wonderful toddler teacher in Wonderland and one of our excellent head teachers. When she isn’t in the classroom teaching the little ones and doing fun educational lessons, activities, and art; she is helping teachers in their classrooms and setting a great example for others. Ms. Elysia is loved by all the students and parents. She is an amazing leader and makes sure to keep everyone on track all while being a loving and supportive teacher.”
