Ms. Dutton Recognized as the FCPS 2023 Region 1 Outstanding School-Based Professional Employee
Congratulations to Literacy Leader Tara A. Dutton on her recognition as the FCPS 2023 Region 1 Outstanding School-Based Professional Employee at this year's FCPS Honors event, held at George Mason University Center for the Arts on June 14th.
Tara’s kind, calm, rational, and helpful demeanor aids her drive to help others. As a lifelong learner, Tara has a wealth of knowledge in many areas that extend beyond her role as a reading specialist. Due to this vast knowledge, Tara offers insight for all teachers and teachers seek her out for advice and support. She consistently rises to the role of leader even though she never seeks it. Her support towards students and teachers comes from her experience in elementary schools (Physical Education, Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, and 6th grade), as well as being a National Board-Certified teacher. In addition, she provides an empathetic approach to parents, teachers, and students.
Thank you to Afton Carlson and Jennifer Wright for all of their hard work with the nomination process by serving as this year's awards liaisons.
