From Principal Kelley Adams: It is our honor to recognize Kathryn Stum as Plum Point Middle School’s Teacher of the Year.

Have you ever heard of the quote… Make it a great day or not… the choice is yours? Katie uses these words weekly on the Gator News Network as she shares special messages to build character at our school.

Katie is a 7th and 8th Grade Co-Taught Special Education Teacher in our English Language Arts classes. Katie supports instruction through both a personalized and differentiated approach to ensure that all students needs are met.

Mentoring is a big part of Katie’s day as she holds students accountable for academics and meets their social emotional needs through one on one weekly meetings and daily check-in check-out support.

Outside of the classroom, Katie is the assistant coach of our girls’ basketball team, a sponsor for the Student Government Association, and any other opportunity she gets to build a positive school environment. She is always willing to lend a helping hand for any school activity!

Congratulations, Katie! By YOUR choice you make staff and student days’ great in Gator Nation! We are very proud of you!
