Ms. Mandy Christman, kindergarten teacher, has been named Riverwalk Academy Staff Member of the Month for the month of May.  Ms. Christman was nominated by a staff member who said the following: 

Mandy should have this award because she gives a 10 out of 10 every day. She pushes me and our students to be the best we can be. She is patient, kind, and she brings so much out of her students. Every day, no matter how she feels, she gives these kids a 10 out of 10 and it shows by how much they love her.

For being selected as the May Staff Member of the Month, Ms. Christman will have her very own parking spot for the month.

Congratulations Ms. Christman for being one of the reasons #WhyRiverwalk.
