District honors two teachers

School trustees honored two Sycamore Valley Elementary educators at a recent meeting, for their achievements in improving student literacy. The San Ramon Valley Unified School Board and district officials honored library coordinator Karen Reedy and teacher Erika Kay.

Reedy has been at Sycamore Valley for 10 years, and she has developed a vibrant library program that includes bringing authors to the school, holding poetry workshops, training parents to read to students, and supporting the New York Reading and Writing Project. She has written and received numerous grants for her work, district officials said.

Kay has been a kindergarten and first-grade teacher and is currently the primary grade literacy coach. She has developed a personalized approach to staff development, school administrators said. She meets with teachers both in and out of class. When educators are supported, they and their students are successful, the administrators added.
