“Brittney goes above and beyond while being a speech therapist teacher. Outside her normal duties, she volunteers as the director for the annual play that is held at Westmore Elm. She buys, sews, and makes alterations to the costumes for all the kids who need them. She puts in a lot of time and effort outside normal school hours to ensure that the program is fun for all the kids participating. She is also amazing at finding deals for school supplies, which she also informs the other teachers who may also need items.”
