Fran Patterson is an outstanding kindergarten teacher at Fred L. Wilson Elementary. She received a record-setting THIRTEEN nominations from folks that could not say enough good things about how wonderful she is. Fran is the first two-time winner of the Hilbish Award. She first received the honor in 2011. We normally don’t select repeat winners, but we could not ignore so many heart-felt nominations. Here is just a sampling:

 

“There are no words to describe how appreciative we are of Mrs. Patterson. I have never come across an individual as genuine and caring as she is. She has helped my children to read and achieve their goals.” Another: “Before starting at Fred L. Wilson, my son was diagnosed with Select Mutism, had severe anxiety, and would not speak at school. It took Mrs. Patterson maybe a month and my son was comfortable enough to speak with her and most other teachers.”  Another nomination said, “Mrs. Patterson goes over and beyond her duties as a teacher and genuinely cares for her students. We could not ask for a better teacher!” Even one of her students sent in a nomination, “My teacher is the best. She helps me with my reading.” Another mom ended her nomination by summing up the feelings of her entire family when it comes to Mrs. Patterson: “We love her dearly.”

We are extremely proud that Fran Patterson is part of our Kannapolis City Schools’ family, and we are delighted that Hilbish Ford is honoring her excellence with the Hilbish Ford Teacher of the Month Award. Congratulations!
