Tammy Wallis (Stafford principal) has just started an attendance incentive at Stafford Elementary for the teachers. The winners get to enjoy a free meal at Chili’s.
Wallis said, “We like to recognize the teachers that have been at school for a full six weeks without an absence. Every teacher deserves to eat a meal that someone else prepares.”
The way this works is, the name of every teacher that has not been absent for six weeks will be put in a “hat”. Three names are blindly drawn to receive a Chili’s Card.
Nine teachers for the six weeks that did not miss a day are; Teresa Young, Teresa Cockran, Paula Mandrell, Rochelle Helner, Beverly Cox, Peri Patterson, Octavia Dorazil, Jennifer Aguado and Kim Nelson.
The three lucky winners are: Octavia Dorazil, Jennifer Aguado and Kim Nelson.
When asked what they thought about winning a free meal they said, “It is great to be paid for something we love to do.”
“Kudos to these teachers and we hope they enjoy the food,” explained principal Wallis.
