    Kasey Kildall is still continuing this year to positively influence her former students with conducting a voluntary Book Club on her own time FREE. It has been amazingly supportive to her former 1st grader students who still need a little love and compassion from COVID Virtual school year. More importantly, she was a rock star virtual teacher navigating these Kindergarteners into 1st grade all online or back and forth teaching them how to navigate screens with ease! She did it with patience and grace like no other and I am forever grateful! . She not only taught our kiddos but also parents to zoom in and connected (only what I assume from my experience) me from my mobile device on zoom classroom calls to my daughters Chromebook once all the other drop offs were gone. She allowed me to hop from one device to the other and while multitasking her real job as a First Grade Teacher. She kept our kiddos interested and excited about learning in school and virtual . She read the room. and recognized the needs of her students/parents and was flexible and malleable during a near impossible year of learning! I wish I could get her paid more but this nomination will have to do! Cheers to you, Kasey! Big Love, Anne & Cece

    Lucy loved having Ms. Kildall last year for first grade and had a wonderful year despite all the COVID challenges. She brings humor, passion, and creativity to the classroom and is always so warm and welcoming and caring with her students. This year, Ms. Kildall has gone above and beyond by providing an after school book club for Lucy and her peers. Lucy looks forward to book club every week. I appreciate the extra effort Ms. Kildall is putting in to ensure these students are thriving and challenged.

    Where to begin...Kasey Kildall is an educator like few others. We had the pleasure of having her last year, when Ben was in 1st grade. I cannot express how fearlessly and flawlessly Ms. Kildall handled teaching in a pandemic. She toggled between in person and virtual with ease, and Ben was always engaged. She has found the sweet spot as a teacher between firm and caring, expecting the best from her students but also showing empathy and concern when a student is not having the best day. She sends DAILY communications home to parents, which I have sorely missed this year. I always knew what has happening both in her classroom and at the school. This year, Ms. Kildall discovered that one of her former students, now a 2nd grader, was having a hard time connecting with students in her new class. She then took it upon herself to start an after school book club on Thursdays, with other students from last year's class. She reached out to parents, and asked if we would like to send our kids so that this 1 student could feel that connection again. She has spent the majority of her free time on Thursdays after school when she could be prepping or even at home, reading and discussing books as well as life with these 2nd grade students. I'm inspired by her dedication to her students, and the difference she makes. We are so lucky to have her in our son's life, and I know countless other parents feel the same.

    Ms. Kildall has been absolutely amazing to our family. We first had her during the 2019/2020 year, when COVID hit. She was so amazing at keeping the kids engaged and excited through figuring out e-learning and reached out after school hours to check in when she could see her students were struggling, and not only checked on them, but also us as parents as well. She helped tremendously in keeping our families sanity through the beginning of COVID. She has unique and fun ideas in her classroom to keep the kids engaged and she is huge on reading and finding the best books to get the kids excited about it. I have been honored to have her twice thus far in our children's educational journey and it's been so great. She continues to check in on the kids even long after they have left her room, and is still open to helping them. She is a one of a kind teacher who will forever have a piece of my heart for the amazing and tremendous impact she has made on my children!

    She energizes the students, makes them excited about school, and puts in so much effort to make sure their needs are met! She seeks out classroom volunteers when they are needed as well as applies for grants to get things that will assist her and the volunteers in the classroom! She has wonderful communication with all of the families, too! She’s absolutely wonderful!!

    Ms. Kildall at Clearwater Elementary has been an excellent teacher for my son, Daniel Smith. From our first meeting, Ms. Kildall set the expectation for Daniel’s reading progress. As parents, we knew from Day One what would be expected of Daniel. In addition to setting the bar early, Ms. Kildall revisited progress each day with classroom reports. Not some days. Not at the start of the year and tapering off. Every single school day (even on sick days!), we received a report directly to our email inbox on what Daniel had done that day and what to look for in the near future. It is so much easier to interact with our son knowing specific topics that he experienced that day. Thanks to Ms Kildall and all the staff of Clearwater for another great year! She is very deserving of top honors!
