HEART CHAMPION: NICOLE McCROSKEY, GUIDANCE COUNSELOR WASHINGTON PARK ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES

NOMINATED BY: TAMMY SARCYK, ENGLISH TEACHER

Ms. Mccroskey takes great care in taking extra steps to provide scholars with a positive support system, especially those scholars in need of high-level social and emotional needs. She coordinates services from agencies such as Murtis-Taylor and with Cleveland State University's Department of Social Work-all in an effort to increase scholar success. She has been a great support to teachers-including me-when, at times, we are dealing with a difficult classroom situation. Ms. Mccroskey is the epitome of H.E.A.R.T. often responding with highly creative solutions. I highly recommend Ms. Mccroskey for this award.
