Advocate, compassionate, and understanding - These three words are often used to describe Ms. Kellie Shivitz. Her students rush in for a hug and high five as Superintendent Dr. Ball paid a surprise visit to Ms. Shivitz in her classroom on Friday afternoon. Ms Shivitz has been selected as the JISD employee of the month for December. Her colleagues describe her as her student’s biggest advocate as they thrive in her classroom. She is known as a team leader going above and beyond for her students. We are honored to have teachers like Ms. Shivitiz leading the classrooms. Congratulations again to Ms. Kelllie Shivitiz from Woodlake Elementary.
