Alexis Mansfield Receives the A+ Award
The Indian Prairie Educational Foundation and District 204 presented Alexis Mansfield, a fourth-grade teacher at Gombert Elementary School, with the A+ Award.
You can watch the A+ Award team’s surprise visit to recognize Mansfield for “Making a Difference” at A+ Award video.
Gombert parent Amanda Pratscher described Mansfield as an exemplary teacher who always has her students best interest at heart. “She doesn’t teach a classroom, she teaches each child,” Pratscher said.
Mansfield strives to make a difference by letting her students know each day that they are important. The teacher said academics are important, but she also works to connect with students so they feel supported. “I want them to feel like I could be there for them for anything, not just school matters,” Mansfield said.
Wells Fargo Advisors is partnering with IPEF and District 204 to help recognize one staff member each month for making a difference for students. To celebrate these outstanding staff members, Wells Fargo Advisors is donating $500 for the staff member to use in his or her school.
