Congrats to our November 2020 Teacher Salute Winner:
Kristy Varunan, Registered Behavior Technician (Kindergarten) at the Pennsylvania Autism Action Center in Broadheadsville!
Kristy was nominated by fellow teacher, Cat B. Below is what Cat had to say about Kristy:
- Kristy is an Registered Behavior Technician at the Pennsylvania Autism Action Center. RBTs are not like regular teachers. RBTs work with children who have autism who need special attention and instruction. With the COVID pandemic we have become these children’s teachers while completing cyber school with them at the center. Kristy is my co-worker, a beautiful person and awesome teacher. She works so hard with her client and always is thinking about the kids at the center. She always uses her own money to buy crafts and supplies and never complains. She is not able to have children of her own, so she treats our kids as her own. She is so loving, passionate and hardworking and she truly deserves to be recognized. I know she is not a regular school district teacher, but please consider her for this contest.
For being our Nov. 2020 Teacher Salute winner, Kristy will receive prizes from Little Caesar's Pizza of the Lehigh Valley, Meera Salon & Day Spa in Whitehall, the Da Vinci Science Center AND Hand Sanitizer from Triple Sun Spirits! Thank you KRISTY for your HARDWORK and DEDICATION to our community!
